Mineral Description
 
healing crystals

These chrysocolla specimens are mined in the mineral rich state of Arizona. They are nice size 3/4" to 1" and are tumbled and polished.

You will receive one crystal from 3/4 inch to 1 inch. Please see the group photo before purchasing. These crystals vary widely in color, some with green malachite and brown cuprite. Please no neutral or negative feedback claiming the item does not match the listing.

Quality tumbled chrysocolla is an expensive type of tumbled stone because it is a soft material and most pieces break in the tumbler polishing process. These are the highest quality tumbled chrysocolla available.

Chrysocolla is attractive blue-green and provides a unique color to the mineral world. Chrysocolla forms in the oxidation zones of copper rich ore bodies. The name Chrysocolla comes from the Greek words cyrysos which means gold and the word kola which means glue.

Chrysocolla has been known to man since the beginning of recorded history. It should be noted that Chrysocolla got its name because its properties were first used to solder gold. Using Chrysocolla was first recorded in 315 BC by a Greek philosopher and botanist named Theophrastus. Legend has it that eilat stone was originally mined in King Solomon's mines in Africa.

In ancient Egypt, it was called the wise stone because it shielded and encouraged the mind during negotiations. Those who wore it generally came up with clever compromises and resolutions and it is said that Cleopatra wore chrysocolla jewelry everywhere she went.

Chrysocolla gently draws off negative energies of all kinds and is especially helpful during transitional times, such as breakups and job loss, among other similar situations. By the same token, Chrysocolla can help calm the emotions and bring understanding to discordant relationships.

Chrysocolla is a wonderful piece to use, on a daily basis, as a support stone. It helps to face challenges and changes with ease. Chrysocolla inspires creativity, inner balance and self-awareness. Chrysocolla can be used where feelings of anger, guilt and blame are present. It will gently assist in the awareness and understanding of this process and will bring in the energies of forgiveness, love and joy. Chrysocolla is a powerful stone because it aligns all chakras with the Divine.

Chrysocolla is a tranquil stone. Chrysocolla can be used with the Throat Chakra, where it helps with wise communication, or with the Heart Chakra to balance and strengthen, helping one to learn how to live from the truth of the Heart.
