Chilean Chrysocolla Beaded Necklace

red-line.gif


Chrysocolla is a unique green-blue but can vary widely from more blue to more green, often in the same specimen. Luster is earthy to dull or vitreous and waxy. This necklace of stunning graduated 10 to 20mm beads exhibits both green and blue. I've added tiny daisy spacers and a hammered sterling Thai silver toggle clasp to complete the design.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The necklace is 19 inches long.

Note: Chrysocolla is a sky-blue to greenish blue and green color, often streaked with black. It is found in the oxidization zone of copper deposits and associated with azurite, malachite, cuprite, turquoise, and quartz (chalcedony mostly). Chrysocolla is considered an ore of copper when associated with other secondary copper minerals. It is found in Chile, Mexico, Russia, Africa, England, Italy, and in the U.S. in Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and New Mexico. Its only value is as a semi-precious gemstone in jewelry. The high quality material is highly prized and sought after by jewelers and rough specimen collectors alike.

Enjoy wearing this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
