A natural Chrysocolla Specimen with a lovely aesthetically pleasing formation. A real collectors piece from Zaire, Africa.
Chrysocolla has a stunning cyan (blue-green) color and is a hydrated copper phyllosilicate mineral, Chrysocolla being a minor ore of copper. The structure of the mineral has been questioned, as spectrographic studies suggest material identified as chrysocolla may be a mixture of the copper hydroxide spertiniite and chalcedony.

CHRYSOCOLLA is a hydrous copper silicate with an amorphous crystal system and a hardness of 2 to 4. The color is green, blue or blue-green. Deposits have been found in Chile, Zaire, Russia and the USA.
Chrysocolla is a stone of empowerment of the feminine energies, in both women and men. It is a stone of the Goddess, and those who resonate with Chrysocolla will likely feel her ancient and enduring energies rising within themselves.
It stimulates the throat chakra for clear communication of one’s inner wisdom. It can even be an aid to learning what that wisdom actually is. Those who have been surprised by hearing oneself speak a thought more profound than that which one had in mind will understand this. The process of formulating and speaking one’s ideas can reveal one’s innate wisdom. Wearing Chrysocolla, especially near the throat chakra, can facilitate these and other gifts of expression.
Chrysocolla is closely attuned to the vibrations of the Earth and can facilitate one’s empathic connection with the Earth’s consciousness. In addition to activating the throat chakra, it can harmonize and balance the heart chakra and can link both heart and throat chakras with the base chakra, for greater life force and physical vitality. Chrysocolla harmonizes with Larimar, Aquamarine, Ajoite, Malachite, Azurite, Lapis and Shattuckite. Azeztulite raises its vibration.
