Chrysocolla is a copper-based mineral which can be found in many locations all over the world. Its colour comes from the oxidation process of the copper ore, which takes on a cyan colour with extended exposure to oxygen, but the stone also contains various quantities of other minerals, which create its soft texture and porous appearance.

Considering its colour, it’s no surprise that chrysocolla is associated with the element of water. For this reason, this is an excellent and powerful stone to incorporate into workings that have to do with water. Communication is the primary meaning of Chrysocolla. It manifests the ability to express through words and actions. Chrysocolla possesses energies that are useful in teaching. It helps one to access higher realms of knowledge and share that wisdom freely with others.


Chrysocolla calms, cleanses and re-energises all the chakras.
