The chrysocolla on this page comes from the copper deposits in Democratic Republic of Congo. Here you will find it in association with malachite and / or dioptase.  Chrysocolla is an hydrous copper silicate with an orthorhombic crystal system. It is found in a variety of blues and bluish greens. Chrysocolla is a secondary mineral and found in oxidised copper deposits, frequently with malachite and azurite, and sometimes with dioptase and other copper minerals. Its habit is botryoidal, rounded masses with bubbly crusts, fibrous or acicular. Each piece is unique with its own characteristics and features. Chrysocolla is ideal for therapists, healers, and all crystal lovers and collectors.
