ON THE WORKBENCH: Chrysocolla

Chrysocolla stone

So, if you’ve been around for a bit, you know that we’re just a teeny obsessed with stones. Like, it might be a bit of a problem. But, we’ve obviously figured out the perfect way to feed the obsession – designing jewelry that focuses on the beauty of natural stones. We want to share a few of our favorites and a little bit of interesting info about them. 

Chrysocolla is a copper stone, ranging from light green to deep blue, and is often found in association with Malachite and Azurite.

Chrysocolla is considered a teaching stone, encouraging us to reveal our highest knowledge so that others may benefit from our experiences. This may come in the form of speaking lovingly to a friend and offering insights, a teacher to a student, or by simply modeling the power of words, chosen wisely with knowledge of their impact in the world. It is also a valuable tool for those who speak for a living. [Ahsian, 115]

Chrysocolla is a talisman of musicians. It is an excellent charm for learning new musical instruments or joining a choir, orchestra or theatre group, and to have the confidence to play in public. [Eason, 231]

Chrysocolla is a stone of wise women everywhere. Worn or carried, it helps older women to express their knowledge and experience through writing, painting, music, crafts or acting. [Eason, 231]
