Chrysocolla is a member of the Jasper-family, distinctive by a lively blending of Blue and Green with an occasional splash of brown matrix. This stone is known for its healing abilities among the Native American cultures and is found near Copper mines in Arizona. Chrysocolla is a copper bearing mineral and is found wherever copper is found. It is believed to attract love. Chrysocolla was historically used by the American Indian people, to bring a strengthening and calming energy.

Chrysocolla, the king of carbonate copper gemstones, is an alluring, vivid blue-green color and is often mistaken for turquoise because they share many visual similarities. It can often be found intermingled with malachite, turquoise and azurite, creating a wonderful mixed gemstone known as eilat stone. Legend has it that eilat stone was originally mined in King Solomon's mines in Africa. The rich, vibrant blue and green colors of chrysocolla are reminiscent of looking down upon the earth's surface from space.
