Beautiful Medium Rectangular Copper Chrysocolla Stones in Hammered BRASS Hoops OOAK#2
I am so happy to have found these amazing Chrysocolla stones with gorgeous golden red copper streaks running through the teal background! This old material was mined in the late 70s and early 80s at the copper mines in Arizona... The mines were already shut down a long time ago, which means this old material is gone FOREVER.
The colors in these are amazing! Heavenly in its calming colors of blue and green, Chrysocolla captures the soft serenity of still water on a golden summers day. Known for lending a helping hand for those who want to tap into their highest truths, Chrysocolla has a gentle flow, inviting you to tune into your own sense of wonder and knowledge and giving you those tools you need to become your own greatest teacher.
The name Chrysocolla comes from the Greek word Chrysos meaning gold and Kola which translates to glue. A whisper of its rich and regal color scheme, golden shades mingled with Malachite, Turquoise, and Azurite – forming the magical blended gemstone known as the Eilat stone. It earned part of its name kola as it was one of the first materials to be used by goldsmiths to weld precious metals together. Artists and workers loved the stone and it was often used by renaissance painters, ground down to a pigment to be used in their most epic works of art. It was beloved by Emperors and Kings, known to be a stone that carried connotations of elite living.
These beauties measure:
Chrysocolla Rectangular Stones: 1 1/16" tall, 3/8" wide at their widest
Hammered BRASS Hoops: 1 3/4" diameter
These hang 2 1/8" from the earwire to the bottom
