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.
Quartz is the second most abundant mineral on Earth accounting for around 12 % of the Earth's crust. Its name is derived from the German word "quarz" meaning hard. Quartz can form in trigonal or hexagonal crystal systems depending on the temperature during formation. Crystallized quartz ideally forms a six-sided crystal terminating with six-sided pyramids. The majority of quartz forms from molten magma. The largest quartz crystal ever found was located near Itapore, Goiaz, Brazil. It measured over 23 feet long and weighed 88,000 pounds.
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.
Clear Quartz is the master healer of all minerals. Quartz is used to program and amplify the intentions and energies you set forth. It is also paired with other minerals to magnify their properties.
