Chrysocolla is a hydrous copper silicate with a hard-ness of 2 to 4. Most frequently the color is green, blue or blue-green, though impurities can darken it to brown or black. Its crystal system is amorphous, and it occurs mostly in closely packed aggregates, and sometimes in botryoidal, stalactitic, fibrous or earthy forms. Chrysocolla is frequently found in oxidized copper deposits, often in association with Malachite and Azurite. Some Chrysocolla stones also contain Cuprite, and these combination stones have their own unique blend of energies. Chrysocolla deposits have been found in Chile, Zaire, Russia and the usa.
Robert simmons Chrysocolla is a stone of empowerment of the feminine energies, in both women and men. It emanates gentleness and power, teaching that genuine power best expresses itself through gentleness. It is a stone of the Goddess, and those who resonate with Chrysocolla will likely feel her ancient and enduring energies rising within themselves.
Chrysocolla stimulates the throat chakra for clear communication of one’s inner wisdom. It can even be an aid to learning what that wisdom actually is. Those who have had the experience of being surprised by hearing oneself speak a thought more profound than that which one had in mind will know what is meant by this. The process of formulating and speaking one’s ideas, especially when it is done spontaneously, can reveal one’s true innate wisdom. Wearing Chrysocolla, particularly wearing it near the throat chakra, can facilitate these and other gifts of expression.
Chrysocolla is closely attuned to the vibrations of the Earth and can facilitate one’s empathic connection with the Earth’s consciousness. In addition to activating the throat chakra, it can harmonize and balance the heart chakra and can link both heart and throat chakras with the base chakra, for greater life force and physical vitality.

It may be called a god-and-goddess stone, because it blends the energies of masculine and feminine, physical and etheric, power and gentleness, all in a graceful and beautiful pattern of colors. Wearing this stone can help one attain the ability to move decisively forward on one’s spiritual path while maintaining the grace which allows for precise expression, kindness and compassion.
Naisha Ahsian Chrysocolla is a cardinal Water element stone, governing the flow of energy and communication. It is powerful for opening and cleansing the throat chakra, allowing one to channel the loving knowledge of the heart to others. It assists us in owning the power of our words and in recognizing how the words we use affect our reality. It facilitates the expression of our heart’s deepest truth, as well our mind’s greatest knowledge.
Chrysocolla is the ‘teaching stone,’ in that it encourages one to speak one’s highest knowledge so that others may benefit from our experiences. This teaching may come in the form of speaking lovingly to a friend and offering one’s insight into his or her life situations. It may come in the form of taking on the role of teacher with a student—offering the benefit of your experience as you open to learn from others. Or you may teach by simply modeling the power of words—choosing your words consciously and with full knowledge of their impact in the world. Teaching can take many forms, but true teaching is the act of speaking one’s truth from the heart and sharing the knowledge one has gained through experience.
Chrysocolla is a valuable ally for those who speak for a living. It can help open a channel between higher consciousness and verbal expression, allowing for Divinely inspired speech and communication. It is also helpful to those who are afraid to speak their hearts, or who may not realize that their words of experience are filled with wisdom which could help others. This stone encourages all of us to share our true selves, without artifice or masks, so our wisdom—not just our information—can be conveyed through our words and our energies.
Chrysocolla is a powerful model for consciously considering the way one puts one’s energy into the world. One can speak and say nothing, or remain silent and speak volumes. Chrysocolla teaches the value of both sound and silence. Its calming, soothing energies facilitate flow in one’s life and one’s energy. It can aid in dispelling fiery energies, angry words, or fear-filled sarcasm, so our most valuable truth is shared through our words or our silence.
Spiritual Chrysocolla governs all aspects of sound healing, whether through words or sound frequencies. Its energy teaches us how sound affects our physical reality and how we can change that reality by adjusting the way we use our words. Chrysocolla’s energy facilitates true communication between all beings by promoting the expression of heart energy.
Emotional Chrysocolla assists one in owning the value of one’s experiences, knowledge and contribution. It helps one feel more secure when communicating with others and helps dispel fear in social situations or when one is speaking in a highly charged emotional situation. It assists one in releasing patterns of sarcasm, criticism and facetiousness in one’s communications with others, as well as releasing the fear from which these patterns stem.
Physical Chrysocolla assists in the release of stress, anxiety and other fear-based imbalances in the body. It can assist in the regulation of the thyroid and adrenals. It is excellent for sore throats, laryngitis and for support of the larynx in general.
