Chrysocolla is a hydrous copper silicate with a hardness of 2 to 4. Most frequently the color is green, blue or blue-green, though impurities can darken it to brown or black. Its crystal system is amorphous, and it occurs mostly in closely packed aggregates, and sometimes in botryoidal, stalactitic, fibrous or earthy forms.
Chrysocolla is a stone of empowerment of the feminine energies, in both women and men. It emanates gentleness and power, teaching that genuine power best expresses itself through gentleness. It is a stone of the Goddess, and those who resonate with Chrysocolla will likely feel her ancient and enduring energies rising within themselves. Chrysocolla stimulates the throat chakra for clear communication of one’s inner wisdom. It can even be an aid to learning what that wisdom actually is. Those who have had the experience of being surprised by hearing oneself speak a thought more profound than that which one had in mind will know what is meant by this. The process of formulating and speaking one’s ideas, especially when it is done spontaneously, can reveal one’s true innate wisdom. Wearing Chrysocolla, particularly wearing it near the throat chakra, can facilitate these and other gifts of expression. Chrysocolla is closely attuned to the vibrations of the Earth and can facilitate one’s empathic connection with the Earth’s consciousness. In addition to activating the throat chakra, it can harmonize and balance the heart chakra and can link both heart and throat chakras with the base chakra, for greater life force and physical vitality.
Wearing this stone can help one attain the ability to move decisively forward on one’s spiritual path while maintaining the grace which allows for precise expression, kindness and compassion.
