Chrysocolla Mineral Specimen #7

CHRYSOCOLLA

HISTORY, NAME, LOCALITIES:  Chrysocolla was first described by the Greek naturalist Theophrastus in 315 B.C.  Its name stems from the Greek chrysos, meaning “gold,” and kolla, or “glue,” and refers to a similar-appearing material used to solder gold.  Chrysocolla is uncommon and has few collecting localities.  Notable sources are in Democratic Republic of Congo, England, Mexico, Russia, Chile, and the United States (Arizona, Utah, New Mexico, Pennsylvania).

 

Modern metaphysical practitioners believe that chrysocolla is a stone of peace that soothes and calms in times of stress, draws off negative energies, and brings understanding to discordant relationships.  As a minor gemstone, chrysocolla is fashioned into cabochons, beads, and ornamental objects.
