Sterling Silver, Chrysocolla mix stone
Dramatic Chrysocolla/Hematite pendant highlighted with hematite beads set with wire wrap weaving using Sterling silver.
Chrysocolla is a gemstone-quality hydrous copper silicate, often forming with copper salts, iron and manganese oxides. It is especially prized for its attractive colors and unique multicolored patterns. Chrysocolla belongs to a very small group of copper-bearing gems, which also includes malachite, azurite, larimar, Oregon sunstone, Paraiba tourmaline and turquoise. Chrysocolla is most famous for its alluring, vivid blue to green cyan color, which is owed to the presence of copper impurities. Although chrysocolla may be a 'lesser known' gemstone, it is still a very fascinating stone that is highly sought-after by many avid gem and mineral enthusiasts. The name 'chrysocolla' was derived from the Greek words 'chrysos' and 'kolla' which translate as 'gold' and 'glue'. It earned its name because it was often used as a gold soldering agent, but eventually, the term evolved into a generic reference to any green copper-bearing mineral
