Chrysocolla is quite precious, rare mineral found in copper mines in Peru. In terms of its chemical composition, it is a hydrated copper phyllosilicate. It usually forms green-blue kidney-shaped or stalactite-like aggregates or crusts with different thickness. Chrysocolla is noted for its sharp green-blue colour, which used to be sought-after by some of the Native American cultures. It often contains an admixture of malachite. Our stones represents outstanding natural combination of chrysocolla with deep green malachite.
