Chrysocolla is an copper phyllosilicate mineral that forms alongside copper. It has a blue green color and often forms with quartz making it hard to qualify on the Mohs Scale of Hardness. When it is in its pure form, Chrysocolla is a 2.5-3.5, but when forming in with silica minerals, it can be as high as a seven!
These Chrysocolla pieces are primarily an aqua green color with a porous look to them. We would not recommend them for tumbling, but the ones with a higher quartz content may do well on an arbour unit. Each stone is between one and four centimeters long. Chrysocolla can be used in all types of projects, including crafting, jewelry, and decorating.
Chrysocolla is thought to work with four different chakras. Working with the solar plexus it is believed to eliminate destructive emotional programming; it heals heartache (Heart Chakra); improves communication (Throat Chakra), and opens psychic vision (Third Eye). This is one busy stone! It is also used in meditations to bring tranquility and to remove negative emotions such as guilt.
