PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

A small % of specimens from this deposit have libethenite in association, but not all! Keep your eye out! Generally Speaking - A very rare batch of polished chrysocolla products made from locally sourced material and polished to perfection in a Malagasy owned workshop! Generally Speaking - 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. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
