Small treasures in clear boxes. These boxes contain mini pieces of peacock ore. 

This colorful copper ore is composed of copper iron sulfide in the form of chalcopyrite and bornite. The tarnishing process, which created the multiple colors, has been induced by treatment in acid. Peacock ore is found in Mexico, USA and Canada. Its colors are related to the quantities of iron (red), copper (blue-green) and gold colored pyrite and galena.
