Medium sized AAA grade tumbled chrysocolla with exceptional colour. Although found in many countries around the world these beautiful stones were produced from material sourced in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Chrysocolla is a soft and fragile mineral so must be handled very carefully. On Mohs scale of mineral hardness it grades just 2½ to 3½ but does often occur with quartz which can make it much harder. When combined with quartz, stones can grade as high as 7 on Mohs scale. This material is much easier to cut and polish because it's not as fragile.
The shades of colour in these chrysocolla tumbled stones varies from green to cyan blue. They're lightly polished and due to the high purity must be handled with care.
When used for its metaphysical properties chrysocolla is exceptionally calming and peaceful hence is often used in conjunction with meditation. It brings harmony and wisdom and the ability to think clearly during turbulent times. Chrysocolla improves the ability to communicate well and imparts a sense of confidence and wellbeing.
A stone of joy and tranquility, chrysocolla can be used to cleanse and purify a living space, to introduce positive energy or remove feelings of negativity or despair from a person. The colour in some grades is not as stable as in others so when charging it should not be placed in direct sunlight.
Our chrysocolla tumbled stones are a medium size crystal but weights and sizes do vary from piece to piece. For this reason we've split sizing into small and medium.
