The large sized specimen is a combination of teal colored Chrysocolla with rich green Malachite on the host rock. The crystals are botyoidal (greek for grape like) clusters that form a three dimensional specimen with lots of character and small unique features.
Chrysocolla is a hydrated copper phyllosilicate mineral and is rated between 2 and 4 on the Mohs hardness scale. The components of the mineral may be a mixture of the copper, hydroxide spertiniite, and chalcedony. Chrysocolla metaphysically is believed to help with balance, stress, and handling mood changes.
Malachite is a copper carbonate hydroxide mineral and is rated between 3.5 and 4 on the Mohs hardness scale. In ancient Egypt, the color green was affiliated with death, the power of resurrection, as well as new life and fertility. Malachite can be found in Russia and Africa currently. Malachite metaphysically is thought to deepen emotional life and elevate power of imagination.
