Malachite is a copper mineral that is best known for its rich green color & banded crystal formations. Formed in copper deposits, it is often found with other minerals such as azurite & Chrysocolla. Most of the Malachite in the world comes from the Congo.
Chrysocolla is a minor ore of copper. It is known for its cyan blue color & is commonly. This mineral is commonly found with malachite, quartz, & azurite. It is commonly confused with turquoise because of its color.
To me this piece is extremely interesting. The origin of Chrysocolla originates from the Greek words (chrysos kolla) or "gold glue" where in ancient times they would use the mineral to solder gold.
This stone is absolutely mesmerizing, the way that the dark green and light blue of the two different minerals intertwine. Tone me the coolest thing about it is how light it is, the more chrysocholla is mixed into the ratio.
Metaphysically, Malachite is a stone of transformation & brings positive transformation again & again. Malachite also assists in making these transformation changes with a gentleness of the heart, easing the transition from one state to the other. As a stone of transformation, Malachite helps with spiritual evolution. Meditation or intentional use of this stone in spiritual practices can bring along heightened & pervasive spiritual growth.
Chrysocolla is especially good for calming ones spirit as well as their nerves. It also is good to have for those who are struggling in relationships and need help communicating. It is believed to breach the barrier between people and resolve differences. Chrsocolla is also an amazing motivator! I would sugest it for having in a workplace, plus it is beautiful & you would probably get many compliments!
