Big Scottish Chalcopyrite Chunk
Large Chalcopyrite Specimen in Brassy Yellow
This large specimen of brassy yellow chalcopyrite crystal also sports an array of other colours. This example of natural Scottish Chalcopyrite comes with a little malachite or chrysocolla around the coppery areas. There are bands of white calcite throughout it and it has some purple and blue colouring in there.
The whole piece weighs around the hundred-gram mark, stands about 4 inches tall by 6 across, and will make a beautiful specimen or show piece. It was found in the Southern Uplands at the end of 2020.
What Does Chalcopyrite Mean in Crystal Healing?
The Chalcopyrite stone has the heavy earth energy of the iron, but it combines it with the regenerative properties of copper. Together, this stone is a great crystal for change. If you are going through a change of home, attending a new job, or have just emerged from a long relationship,
Chalcopyrite, or peacock ore, will help you overcome the changes smoothly.
Chalcopyrite is not gold but is sometimes mistaken for gold. The peacock, too, is known for putting on a big show. If you want to make a good impression on someone – perhaps on a date or at a job interview – then peacock ore can help you set that scene.
Chalcopyrite is sometimes called the ‘Stone of the Mystic’ for two reasons. One, that shamans have historically used it to unblock chakras, and two, that it is related to the third eye, crown, and throat chakras. If these three chakra points are kept open, blockages farther down in the body can be washed away.
