This mash-up is a seriously mysterious-looking piece! 

 

Pyrite, Chalcopyrite, and Bornite are all sulfide minerals that belong to the same class but exhibit different chemical compositions and physical properties. Here's info on all three:

 

Pyrite, also known as "Fool's Gold," is an iron sulfide mineral with a metallic luster and brass-yellow hue. It often forms cubic or octahedral crystals and is commonly found in sedimentary rocks, metamorphic rocks, and hydrothermal veins. Pyrite is valued for its resemblance to gold and its association with abundance, protection, and manifestation. Metaphysically, Pyrite promotes vitality, confidence, and willpower while shielding against negative energies and promoting abundance and prosperity.

 

Chalcopyrite is a copper iron sulfide mineral with a brassy yellow color and metallic luster. It typically forms tetragonal crystals and is commonly found in hydrothermal veins and sedimentary deposits. Chalcopyrite is the primary ore of copper and is valued for its economic significance as a source of copper, as well as its striking appearance. Metaphysically, chalcopyrite enhances perception, intuition, and creativity while also promoting abundance and prosperity.

 

Bornite, also known as "Peacock Ore," is a copper iron sulfide mineral with a metallic luster and iridescent colors ranging from blue and purple to red and gold. It often forms pseudocubic or dodecahedral crystals and is commonly found in hydrothermal veins and metamorphic rocks. Bornite's iridescent colors are due to its tarnishing process, which results in the formation of colorful oxidation products on its surface. Metaphysically, Bornite stimulates inner vision, enhances spiritual awareness, and promotes joy and positivity.
