Hey there again guys, recently on a prospecting trip
We came across these strange rocks, they contain some strange pinkish purple/ with green and blue hues, was curious to see if this stuff would be worth crushing or continuing with the removal of more looks like pyrite of some kind well so i think. Cheers guys.

sounds like it may contain bornite, aka "Peacock Ore".

Looks like sulfides all right. Pyrite is associated with precious metal deposits, as well as lots of non-precious-metal contexts, so just saying it has pyrite in it isn't any sort of guarantee. Looks cool though.
