Chrysocolla has a cyan (blue-green) colour and is a minor ore of copper. The material has a wide range of hardness between 2.5 to 7.0. It is of secondary origin and forms in the oxidation zones of copper ore bodies. Associated minerals are quartz, limonite, azurite, malachite, cuprite, and other secondary copper minerals. It is typically found as botryoidal or rounded masses and crusts, or vein fillings. Congo produces the most frequently available materials sold at Toprock but the material is also known from Namibia from time to time. Malachite is the more frequently associated mineral to the chrysocolla out of Congo. Natural specimens are not as commonly available as polished items, but the supply is highly variable. Malachite & Chrysocolla is generally sourced from the Copper mines in the Congo. The rough material is given a stunning freeform hand polish. Absolutely beautiful product line with exceptional colours of blue, green, grey and others in dynamic combinations. The individual pieces are hand shaped and polished to perfection. Price is grade dependent. Item/s are as shown.
