CHRYSOCOLLA is a copper ore semiprecious gemstone usually found in copper deposits. It is many times mistaken for turquoise or azurite, and can be found mixed with turquoise, azurite, and malachite. Chrysocolla is a stone of communication, symbolizing expression, teaching, and wisdom (especially in women). This chrysocolla is from Arizona, USA.
