Chrysocolla/Malachite Designer Cab Pendant

Often similar to turquoise in appearance, chrysocolla usually occurs as a bright green or bluish crust or as compact grapelike groups in copper mining areas, particularly Chile, the former USSR and Zaire. This particular stone combines chrysocolla, and malachite with quartz and has a small drusy hole in one of the quartz bands. It's a lovely color with swirling shades of green and white with small bands of bluish green at the base of the stone. I've border wrapped it in sterling silver with two sweeping swirls at the top and it has a large hidden bail in the back.

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

This pendant measures 2 3/8" from top of bail and is 1 1/4" wide.

Note: Chrysocolla is a copper bearing mineral found wherever copper deposits occur especially in areas of the southwestern USA, Chili, Zaire, Australia, France and England. It is often found mixed with azurite, malachite and turquoise. Pure chrysocolla is too soft for jewelry purposes but it is often found in quartz deposits which makes it hard enough to polish for cabochons. Folklore suggests chrysocolla is helpful in creativity, female energy and communication. Some lore ascertain it relieves ulcers and arthritis. Chrysocolla is associated with tranquility and peace, intuition, patience, and unconditional love. It is thought to offer gentle and soothing qualities.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
