.:: About Chrysocolla Cuprite ::.
Chrysocolla Cuprite also known as Sonora Sunset, and sometimes Sonora Sunrise, is named for the lovely and colorful sunsets over the Sonoran Desert, from which it is found. This material is from the Mina Milpillas, Cuitaca, Mun. de Santa Cruz, Sonora, Mexico. The mine opened in 2006. Though most copper mines are open pit mines, this material is covered by 1000 feet of gravel! This major operating copper mine is famous for the museum class Azurite crystals it has produced. Unfortunately it was difficult to get the Sonora Sunset out, as the mining company is in it for the copper ore only, and by late 2011 most of the copper oxide areas were mined out anyway.
Chrysocolla is a hydrated copper silicate and is found in the oxidation zone of copper deposits. Cuprite is commonly found as an oxidation product of copper sulfides in the upper zones of veins and is often associated with other copper ores. The black in this material is either Tenorite or iron.
Chrysocolla is named from the Greek chrysos - "gold" and kolla - "glue" in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold. Cuprite is named from the Latin, cuprum, meaning copper.

.:: About Chrysocolla ::.
Chrysocolla is first and foremost a Stone of Communication. Its very essence is devoted to expression, empowerment and teaching. The serenity of its turquoise-blue color discharges negative energies, calms, and allows truth and inner wisdom to surface and be heard. A peaceful stone, it emphasizes the power our words and actions have on those around us, and encourages compassion and strengthening of character.
Chrysocolla is a copper stone, ranging from light green to deep blue, and is often found in association with Malachite and Azurite. Some chrysocolla contains other minerals such as Quartz, limonite and Cuprite. It is favored as a stone of prosperity and business astuteness, reacting upon the analytical and intuitive abilities. Like a balance scale, it can stimulate the mind and relax emotions at the same time.
Chrysocolla is a stone of empowerment of the feminine energies, teaching that genuine power is best expressed through gentleness. It is a stone of the Goddess, and those who resonate with it will likely feel her ancient and enduring energies rising within themselves.
It is the stone of forgiveness, peace, and the strengthening of emotional bonds. It encourages compassion, and helps us recover our natural spontaneity.
