Peacock Ore Specimens
Lovely little iridescent Peacock Ore specimens, intended for mineral collectors.
We do also sell larger packets of one kilogram, perfect for lapidary use – especially rock tumbling. Peacock Ore may not be ideal for rock tumbling, but does seem to be increasing in popularity. Single pieces typically measure around 30-50MM.
These are natural pieces of Peacock Ore, which are typically Bornite or Chalcopyrite treated with a strong acid. The colours vary from piece to piece but often includes blues and purples, amongst others.
Due to the metallic nature of this material it should not be placed in aquariums, vivariums, fish tanks, etc.
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!
