THE MINERAL CHALCOPYRITE
Chalcopyrite is a beautiful mineral, with good crystals being fairly common. It is also readily available, with quality specimens being surprisingly affordable. "Peacock Ore" is Chalcopyrite treated with acid to produce an iridescent tarnish. Though some Chalcopyrite is naturally iridescent, wild colors such as strong blues and purples are usually formed from acid treatment. Chalcopyrite is an excellent stone for meditation and this is its most powerful aspect, although it is also a strong healing stone for the physical body.
