NOTE: will need to be made again first.
I also have lighter chrysocolla beads (see a pic of both of them in the picture gallery here) – the lighter ones have a separate webshop listing.
Finally, the darker ones can have a seagreen tassel as well (separate listing).

Chrysocolla is first and foremost a Stone of Communication. Its very essence is devoted to expression, empowerment and teaching. The serenity of its turquoise-blue color discharges negative energies, calms, and allows truth and inner wisdom to surface and be heard. A peaceful stone, it emphasizes the power our words and actions have on those around us, and encourages compassion and strengthening of character.
Chrysocolla is a copper stone, ranging from light green to deep blue, and is often found in association with Malachite and Azurite. Some chrysocolla contains Cuprite. It is favored as a stone of prosperity and business astuteness, reacting upon the analytical and intuitive abilities. Like a balance scale, it can stimulate the mind and relax emotions at the same time.
Chrysocolla is a stone of empowerment of the feminine energies, teaching that genuine power is best expressed through gentleness. It is a stone of the Goddess, and those who resonate with it will likely feel her ancient and enduring energies rising within themselves.
It is the stone of forgiveness, peace, and the strengthening of emotional bonds. It encourages compassion, and helps us recover our natural spontaneity.
Chrysocolla is a teaching stone, encouraging us to reveal our highest knowledge so that others may benefit from our experiences. This may come in the form of speaking lovingly to a friend and offering insights, a teacher to a student, or by simply modeling the power of words, chosen wisely with knowledge of their impact in the world. It is also a valuable tool for those who speak for a living.
Chrysocolla is a talisman of musicians. It is an excellent charm for learning new musical instruments or joining a choir, orchestra or theatre group, and to have the confidence to play in public. The highest form of Chrysocolla is Gem Silica, a crystallized form in which the Chrysocolla is infused in Quartz, offering a magnified version of all the Chrysocolla energies, and is the best for producing and/or experiencing sacred sound. Those who chant, sing or speak mantras will benefit most from Gem Silica.
Chrysocolla is a stone of wise women everywhere. Worn or carried, it helps older women to express their knowledge and experience through writing, painting, music, crafts or acting. It is a remarkable gift for first-time grandmothers and great-grandmothers to help balance their new caring role, and is a good stone for those who may feel nervous at home at night if living alone.
One strange property of Chrysocolla known since antiquity, is its property of encouraging people to stay at home. It is the stone of monks, hermits and prisoners, diminishing the anxiety and depression that often accompanies seclusion. People with wandering temperaments, who never stay in one place, would benefit from it.
Chrysocolla supports those who work in the computer industry and accountants by calming emotional stress. For designers and inventors, it encourages inspiration by combining creative ideas with new practical applications. Within the home, Chrysocolla draws off the negative energies of rocky relationships and situations that are constantly changing. It provides stability, acceptance and great inner strength.
This stone’s calming effect helps with nervous disorders, such as anxiety and depression, feelings of guilt, and hyperkinetic movement. It is also a beneficial stone for women by reducing menstrual pain, and is conducive to happy pregnancies by relieving the anxieties of first-time mothers.
Chrysocolla assists in the regulation of the thyroid and adrenals. It is excellent for sore throats, laryngitis and for support of the larynx in general. It is also beneficial for high blood pressure, blood sugar levels, diabetes – particularly Type 2, and blood disorders and problems of the lungs.
Chrysocolla aids digestion. It particularly works on the gall bladder, activating and healing it by reducing the effects of nausea, pain and other symptoms relating to the problem. Chrysocolla detoxifies and fortifies the liver functions, including bloating, pain, fatty buildup and jaundice. It also treats problems associated with hip joints and hip replacement, arthritis, and rheumatism. It strengthens muscles and alleviates muscle cramps and helps with infections, fever, burns and scars.
On an emotional level, Chrysocolla teaches the value of both expression and the virtue of keeping silent. One can speak and say nothing, or remain silent and speak volumes. This stone’s soothing energy dispels highly charged emotional situations, angry words or fear-filled sarcasm, to allow one’s truth to be shared with wisdom and true communication.
Chrysocolla opens bottled emotions that block the mind from thinking clearly, and stimulates balance and wholeness. It also helps men to show their vulnerable feelings and recovery from violence by partners of either sex.
Chrysocolla is powerful for opening and stimulating the Throat Chakra, allowing one to channel the loving knowledge of the heart to others, thus also balancing the Heart Chakra. It allows for clear communication of one’s innate inner wisdom, even discerning what that wisdom may be. The surprise of hearing oneself speak aloud a thought more profound than what one had in mind demonstrates this gift of expression.
Chrysocolla stimulates the initiative qualities of one’s character to release the distress of negative emotions and further the understanding of others. By accepting the perfection of the universe, it provides insights necessary to help re-align the physical body, intellect and emotions. This self-awareness and inner balance imparts confidence and enhances personal power. It helps one attune to the Earth and communicate with its spiritual forces, providing direction to do what is required to help the Earth heal itself.
Chrysocolla is a stone of “earth-grounding” and is valuable in preventing one from losing touch with the conscious mind during deep meditations. It provides strength and protection during vision quests and astral travel, and due to its high spirituality, acts to improve meditation and to further peace of mind.
