Anyone know what mineral this is? It has blue, purple, gold and a little green/turqouise in it and is super glittery. I bought 2 at the local store and we were so busy chatting it up they forgot to slip in the information and I forgot to read the label! I love it! Thank you!

Peacock Ore

"Peacock Ore" which is sold to many mineral collectors and thought to be Bornite, is usually Chalcopyrite that is treated with acid to produce a stronger iridescent tarnish.
Who would ever think tarnish could be so beautiful? :D

I have one of these, but mine is not shiny, but it has every color of the rainbow. Absolutely beautiful.

Ah, thank you! It is gorgeous and I love it! My husband thought it started with a C!! Thank you, gang! :)

I've never seen one of those "in person". Are they really as irridescent and bright as they are in the photos, or are they wet?

Yup, they are that bright! I have one, and boy is it pretty. I find that it is also very useful in helping me to recall information- like where I put things... all I do is hold it and breathe deeply. Then I remember where I've put it!

It is also helpful for synthesizing information- so after I've researched a topic, I will meditate with it, and it helps me to put all of the puzzle pieces together.

I love this crystal, its one of my favourites, I'm so connected to all things "peacock" i dunno why though:)

LOL No, they are quite dry and they are very glittery and irridescent and have amazing colours. I love them. They really catch your eye. A friend mentioned she had seen some really large ones. I would love to get my hands on something like that! What an excellent meditation stone it would make!
