Southern Cross Things to Do: 15 reviews and 24 photos


Bornite or Peacock Iron/ore has a range of many colours through it. The colours come from an iridenscent tarnish which forms on bornite when it is exposed to the air. The ore usually contains silver, gold, zinc and lead. The name of course comes from the colours of a peacocks tail.

Address: Yilgarn History Museum, Antares St, Southern Cross
