Chrysocolla is not easy to work with but this one was worth the effort. From afar this stone is a gorgeous deep teal colour, but when you look at it closely, the greens, blues, coppers of varying depths emerge along with the pattern. Chrysocolla is a favourite stone of gemstone lovers for its colours. The Sterling silver setting and long lacy silver chain accentuates the long teardrop shape of the stone.
Chrysocolla is a combination stone of Azurite, Malachite and possibly Cuprite. It is the copper in these stones that make it green/blue. Wikipedia says It is favored as a stone of prosperity and business astuteness, reacting upon the analytical and intuitive abilities.
