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 rectangular bead necklace has tiny roundel beads and sterling silver daisy spacers in between each chrysocolla bead. There are two strands, each attached to a sterling silver fish clasp for a uniquely simple yet dressy look.

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

The necklace is 20 1/2 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.
