My brand-new Chrysocolla! Isn’t she lovely? I love the peacock blue and green so much.
Chrysocolla is a stone that contains copper, hence the green and blue colors.
Mainly known as a stone of communication, expression, empowerment and teaching. The tarot card that comes to mind is the three of Pentacles which just happened to be at the top of my Tarot deck just now! The stone can stimulate the analytical side and relax the emotional side.
“It is favored as a stone of prosperity and business astuteness, reacting upon the analytical and intuitive abilities.” ~ Crystal Vaults
With the blue color and the affinity for speaking and teaching, Chrysocolla corresponds to the throat Chakra for me. The emotional correspondences align with the heart Chakra, so this is a good stone for working with both.
Chrysocolla is a stone for wise women, singers, and speakers, but this next part is a little strange and apropos:
One strange property of Chrysocolla known since antiquity, is its property of encouraging people to stay at home. It is the stone of monks, hermits and prisoners, diminishing the anxiety and depression that often accompanies seclusion. People with wandering temperaments, who never stay in one place, would benefit from it.Crystal Vaults
So this would be a great pandemic shelter-in-place stone!
The Crystal Vaults site also says that Chrysocolla can support programmers, accountants, designers, and inventors by calming emotions and finding practical applications for creative ideas. I know that it has been sitting next to me while I worked on a new project and I was amazingly calm and unruffled through the whole project, which is unlike me.
Since it is emotionally balancing, Chrysocolla is also a good stone for depression and anxiety (can I get a full suit made of Chrysocolla, please).
