Chrysocolla, the king of carbonate copper gemstones, is an alluring, vivid blue-green color and is often mistaken for turquoise because they share many visual similarities. It can often be found intermingled with malachite, turquoise and azurite, creating a wonderful mixed gemstone known as Eilat stone (named after the city where it was once mined). Legend has it that Eilat stone was originally quarried in King Solomon's mines in Africa--which is partly why it is the national stone of Israel.
The name was first used by Theophrastus in 315 B.C. and comes from the Greek "chrysos", meaning "gold," and "kolla", meaning "glue," in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold.
According the metaphysics: Also known as the Teaching Stone, the soft feminine energy of Chrysocolla stirs your curiosity and invites you out to seek higher knowledge. Despite its long illustrious history with emperors and kings, it is believed to be the stone of wise women around the world. It invites women to channel that energy into expression and creativity, to share their knowledge and their truth with the world, and to sit in the serenity of their own soul.
