About Bornite and Peacock Ore
Bornite is an important ore of copper. In the ground, it is bronze in color, but the metallic luster tarnishes rapidly to purple after a freshly broken surface is exposed to air. This colorful tarnish is what caused miner's to coin the term "peacock ore."
Bornite is closely related to Chalcopyrite, another copper sulfide mineral, that is also sometimes called peacock ore. Bornite and Chalcopyrite can both be treated to artificially enhance the iridescent tarnish. Though the composition of these minerals are similar, they having different healing properties.
