    Hi EagleDown,
    Peacock ore and COvellite are not the same.
    Peacock ore looks similar, but is much harder. Covellite is really quite soft and is a mess to cut. Everything gets black and stinky.
    BUT... Covellite has awesome purple and red color play when it is cut well. It's pretty rare these days.
    I bought some at Quartzite and the guy told me he had to dive for it in an old quarry. Perhaps it's where that mine was.
    It wasn't cheap even uncut.
    I bought a really nice piece of Peacock Ore just the other day at one of those "buy a bag of rocks" places inside a store similar to Discover Store for $2.
    I was hoping to cut it because it was so pretty.
    IAMZIM,
    Are those reflections off of a window onto your stones or are those lines actually on the Covellite?

    Thanks for the complements on my stones...yes they are reflections of the windows on my house lol! The guy that polished them is VERY good! And yes, covellite is soft, I want to get some peices cut for cuff-links, but he will have to put a quartz cap on them to protect them, but it looks really cool because it gives them a really REDish-purple irridecent look to them. Ill post them when I get a chance to have them done!
