This specimen showcases high-grade chrysocolla with some small pockets of malachite and quartz sprinkled throughout! You can even see the natural shape of the quartz crystals in the pictures! Just like many of our other polished shapes, many people love our egg carvings. There is something unique about these specimens as they are a little less common than spheres and towers.

Chrysocolla is a hydrated copper silicate mineral. Its name comes from the Greek words "chrysos" and "kolla" meaning gold and glue, respectively. It is often associated with other minerals such as quartz, azurite, malachite, and various other copper minerals. It most commonly forms in veins or botryoidal masses.
Chrysocolla is known as the stone of expression, empowerment, and teaching. It embraces inner wisdom while relieving fear, anxiety, and guilt. Many say it heals a broken heart.
