Chrysocolla Stones, Tumbles & Beads

Chrysocolla is a secondary mineral, it is always included with another mineral or stone, such as Malachite, Hematite, Quartz, Azurite, Cuprite, Dioptase, or Wulfenite to name a few. There are no known singular Chrysocolla crystals.

The name was first used by Theophrastus in 315 B.C. and comes from the Greek chrysos, meaning "gold," and kolla, meaning "glue," in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold. André-Jean-François-Marie Brochant de Villiers revived the name in 1808. []
