Chrysocolla Beads: The As Beautiful and Amazing as a High Note Necklace
Chrysocolla is perhaps more correctly a mineraloid than a real mineral. Most of the time it is amorphous translating that it does not have a logical crystalline structure.
Chrysocolla that is pure are very soft and brittle therefore it is not a very recommendable stone to use for jewelry. However, chrysocolla frequently is "agatized" in chalcedony quartz and it is the quartz that extends the stone with its shine and hardness. Druzy chrysocolla is a rock made of agatized chrysocolla with a crust of small sparkling quartz crystals in particle of cavities.
The name Chrysocolla gains from the Greek phrases "crysos" which means "gold" and the word "kola" which means "glue".
Chrysocolla can harmonize with Larimar, Aquamarine and Ajoite, these stones shivers in the same extensive spectrum.
Chrysocolla is named due to it being used to solder gold. The first recorded used of Chrysocolla dates back 315 BC by a Greek philosopher and botanist named Theophrastus. In ancient Egypt, it was called the "wise stone" because it guarded and motivated the mind during dialogues.
Chrysocolla occurs very widely in the American Southwest in copper deposits. Blue chrysocolla impregnated quartz, covered by small crystals of white quartz, from the Globe Mine, Gila County, Arizona, are frequent in collections. Fine massive specimens were found, in the early stages, in most of the western United States copper mines. Also found today in Africa and Chile. Russia and England (Cornwall and Cumberland) once produced good specimens.
