Chalcopyrite is a brass-yellow mineral that occurs in most sulphide mineral deposits throughout the world and has been the most important ore of copper for thousands of years. The surface of chalcopyrite loses its metallic lustre and brass-yellow colour upon weathering. It tarnishes to a dull, gray-green colour, but in the presence of acids the tarnish can develop a red to blue to purple iridescence. Often referred to as Peacock Ore, which is the appropriate name for the mineral Bornite.
Chalcopyrite is a powerful stone that activates and aligns all chakras. It's a powerful tool that has been used to remove blockages of chakras by shamans and reiki professionals. This stone offers up transformative energies that assist in changing of habits, routines and lifestyles. Working with this stone will help one in finding their own way and life meaning.
Carrying this stone daily is ideal for anyone feeling like their “stuck” in the same daily motions and are looking for a sudden change. This stone has always been associated with opportunity and new beginnings, and has been commonly used as a trinket for obtaining luck.
Although this stone activates all chakras, it specifically resonates with the higher 3 chakras. Chalcopyrite has been known to expand the mind and open it up to a higher realm. This stone opens our third eye to endless visions when meditating with it, while also using our crown chakra to bridge the gap between physical and spiritual realms. The energies of this stone on the throat chakra specifically help in bringing in this knowledge to the physical. By being able to talk about what you see, feel and hear, you are making it a physical emotion, confirming its reality. That energy can manifest and bring with it positive and life changing opportunities.
