    Chrysocolla: Meaning, Metaphysical & Healing Properties

    Chrysocolla is a form of hydrated copper that represents female energy (Goddess energy) and wisdom. It has a gentle, calm and nurturing energy that helps us communicate from a place of pure love and acceptance. It helps bring our heart and throat center in harmony and speak our truth without fear or guilt.

    Its color ranges from blue to blue-green/turquoise all the way to green and specimens will often contain a mixture of those colors. Specimens often also have some brown to dark brown coloration from impurities.
