Chrysocolla/Malachite

The large sized specimen is a combination of teal colored chyrscolla 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. Specimen measures 10 x 6 x 5 inches. Weighs 4.6 lbs. 

Chrysocolla-Malachite is a combination of two copper-derived silicate minerals. Since these specimens contain different minerals, they are considered rocks. Chrysocolla-Malachite is a combination of two Copper minerals. Copper typically formed as a sulfide, which oxidized when exposed to water. If that water also contained carbonic acid, it dissolved the copper and formed new compounds, including green malachite.  If the copper was oxidized, cyan-colored chrysocolla also may have formed.  

 Chrysocolla + Malachite is known to bring serenity, tranquility and calming energies, making it a beautiful crystal to have in your space. It brings the energy of new beginnings, helping to facilitate smooth transitions in times of change.
