Chrysocolla is a hydrated copper phyllosilicate mineral.
The name comes from the Ancient Greek: χρυσός κολλα (chrysos kolla), "gold glue", in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold, and was first used by Theophrastus in 315 BCE.
Notable occurrences include Indonesia, Israel, Democratic Republic of Congo, Chile, England and the United States.
Considering its bright green/blue colour, it's no surprise that chrysocolla is associated with the element of water. In ancient times because of its colour and distinctive look, chrysocolla has become a favourite for invoking the powers of water, the sea and the divine feminine.
It is a very gentle stone of harmony and its energy works in a gentle, harmonious way. It can help ease fear, anxiety, guilt and bring hope.
Chrysocolla is a highly positive mineral and can be used to release feelings of distress or other negative energy.
While some anti-negativity stones suck it up like a magnet, this chrysocolla is more like a flashlight that shines a light on the dark parts of life. It allows you to look at the negative emotions you're experiencing, acknowledge their validity and then let them go.
Chrysocolla stimulates the initiative qualities of one’s character to release the distress of negative emotions and further the understanding of others. By accepting the perfection of the universe, it provides the insights necessary to help re-align the physical body, intellect and emotions.
Because of its water quality, it has a unique way of washing away stress and emotional strain. Chrysocolla can make you feel safer, happier and more relaxed.
Chrysocolla is also known for its abilities to aid in teaching. Perhaps because it improves communicative skills, both teachers and students feel much more successful.
