I purchased several of these pieces of ore at a gem and mineral show this weekend. I’ve always admired the colors in peacock ore which is also known as Bornite. The variety of color is beautiful and has a brown to copper-red color on fresh surfaces that tarnishes to various iridescent shades of blue to purple. Its striking iridescence gives it the nicknamed peacock copper or peacock ore. This piece had a dominant gold-toned area that I thought would look best wrapped with brass wire.
