The name chalcopyrite comes from the Greek words chalkos, which means copper, and pyrites', which means striking fire. It was sometimes historically referred to as "yellow copper". Chalcopyrite is often confused with pyrite and gold since all three of these minerals have a yellowish color and a metallic luster. Some important mineral characteristics that help distinguish these minerals are hardness and streak. Chalcopyrite is much softer than pyrite and can be scratched with a knife, whereas pyrite cannot be scratched by a knife. Overall, it has a beautiful golden sheen and definitely goes into your mineral collection.
According to metaphysics: Chalcopyrite is linked with the Sun, Light in all its forms, and our own personal quest for enlightenment. It invites us to wake up spiritually and journey with joy into a new day. 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.
