About the stones:
Chrysocolla gets its cyan/blue/green color from copper – it contains the copper hydroxide mineral speriniite. Otherwise, its’ structure has been questioned, although sometimes it grows with quartz or contains chalcedony. Chrysocolla can rate anywhere from 2-7 on the Mohs scale – a huge range, due to varying silica content. It is often confused for turquoise due to its’ color.
