Morning Akramm,
If you described the region this rock was found it would help with identification.
First impression from your photos is this mineral could be a form of Granite.


Good luck & safe travels
Peter

Good luck & safe travels

Hi Peter
Lot of these minerals can come in different colors,need to look at in the light.

According to my bible Bornite is a copper iron sulfide,hardness of 3 and comes in metamorphic rocks with quarts,and lot more stuff,and in lot of colors,and that is what it could too.
