Chrysocolla is a hydrous copper silicate with a hardness of 2 to 4. Most frequently the color is green, blue or blue-green, though impurities can darken it to brown or black. Its crystal system is amorphous, and it occurs mostly in closely packed aggregates, and sometimes in botryoidal, stalactitic, fibrous or earthy forms. Chrysocolla is frequently found in oxidized copper deposits, often in association with Malachite and Azurite. Some Chrysocolla stones also contain Cuprite, and these combination stones have their own unique blend of energies Chrysocolla deposits have been found in Chile, Zaire, Russia and the USA.
