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. It is a pseudomorph, meaning a mineral chemically replaces another mineral without changing the external form of the original mineral. Its name has greek origins, translating to "gold glue" referring to its use of soldering gold. Energetically Chrysocolla is thought to provide a grounding yet stimulating energy to the chakras base, sacral, solar, heart and throat. When it is druzy there is an element of quartz involved, thought to help provide clarity and accelerate its properties.
These chrysocolla specimens are left in there completely natural and raw state ethically sourced from the Democratic Republic of the Congo. They are labeled A - I, please see the corresponding letter on each photo. They range in size 2 inches to 3.5 inches and are incredible quality. I believe some of these also have a good deal of malachite mixed in, especially H - which was super hard to photograph - like a little crystal cave!
Chrysocolla has a hardness of 2-4, so it is a softer mineral. Keep it safe and dry, handle with care.
