  • Primary locations: Australia, Canada, Mexico, Peru, U.S.A., and various European countries
  • Its name is derived from Ancient Greek χαλκός khalkós meaning copper and πυρίτης λίθος pyritēs lithos “stone which strikes fire”
  • A copper iron sulfide occurring widely in porphyry copper deposits (volcanic hydrothermal veins)
