About Chrysocolla: The name comes from the Greek, "gold", and kolla, "glue", in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold, and was first used by Theophrastus in 315 BCE. It's unique blue green color is unique in the mineral world, and sometimes gets confused for turquoise. Chrysocolla is the gentlest of stones. Its main role is to soothe, calm and inspire. Its color alone is soothing with a deep blue-green which might remind you of a distant mountaintop or the stillness at the bottom of the sea.
