Chrysocolla Meaning & Healing Properties
Chrysocolla is a greenish-blue mineral comprised of hydrated copper silicate. Typically occurring as opaline crusts and/or masses, the structure of the mineral has been questioned, as studies suggest that the mineral may be a mixture of copper hydroxide spertiniite and chalcedony. The cyan color of Chrysocolla is absolutely stunning, some growths containing bands of white and green. Chrysocolla is associated with minerals such as quartz, limonite, azurite, malachite, cuprite, and other secondary copper minerals. It is most commonly found in Australia, Bolivia, Mexico, Namibia and Russia.
Chrysocolla is known to help soothe and calm during times of stress, releasing negative emotions and promote peace within. A tranquil stone, Chrysocolla is a great piece to use in everyday life, helping to face challenges, changes, and sudden moments of fear or anger. It promotes awareness and provides stabilizing and balancing energies throughout the body. It can further assist one to become attuned to Earth and can provide direction to assist one in increasing the ionization of the atmosphere. Chrysocolla also assists one in communication with the spiritual forces of the Earth and can help one to understand that which is required in order that the Earth may heal itself.
This mineral, in general, revitalizes and calms the base, sacral and solar plexus chakras. At the heart chakra, it can also assist in the ease of emotional heartache and to give renewed strength and balance; it further increases one to refrain from verbalization when silence would be beneficial. It has acted to purify the home and the environment, and can work to eliminate negativity in surrounding atmospheres. Chrysocolla imparts an energy conducive to stabilizing the home and rebuilding relationships, its powers assisting in the awareness and understanding of the process and bringing in the energies of forgiveness, love and joy.
