Bornite is a striking mineral which can be found near copper deposits.  Bornite is regularly referred to as Peacock Ore because of the iridescent colors this mineral exhibits.  Bright blues and purples make this mineral stand out in any collection.  Can you see the resemblance of Bornite to a peacock?
