My guess is peacock ore.

Maybe anodized titanium.

Sorry Weasel, I have to disagree - it looks more like pyrite. Can you please give some background? Also please see if you can do a streak test to see if it has a black streak. Pyrite has a distinctive black streak.

I have 3 pyrites, so I have to say, That is a pyrite

I've seen a picture of pyrite, and it looks like it.
