Chrysocolla Crystal

Chrysocolla received its name through the Ancient Greek Philosopher Theopharastus around 300bc when he noticed its resemblance to a borax-based material used for wielding gold pieces, chryso (gold), and colla (glue).

Worn by many throughout ancient times, Egyptians were known to call chrysocolla the 'wise stone' or the 'stone of wisdom' as it would be known to give the wearer a calming effect, particularly when dealing with unruly, hotheaded people. Cleopatra was known to gift chrysocolla when in attendance with, rulers, officials, and heads of state. The wise part clearly working with Cleopatra. Egyptians would also wear chrysocolla as protection from psychic attacks, psychological injury, or emotional abuse. Wearing chrysocolla wasn't just used for adults, children were also given this crystal to wear as protection to possibly help ward off any unwanted influences during both life and death.

Chrysocolla is a beautiful stone. One will notice the resemblance to the planet we are all currently a part of, Earth. With its bright blue colouring representing the waters, and the green representing the land, it will come as no surprise that this stone represents the gentleness and power of the beautiful feminine energy, grounding us, centering us, and connecting us to Mother Gaia in order to help promote Earth healing and healing within oneself.
