Chrysocolla is one of the gentlest of stones. It's not a
high-energy stone like Quartz,
Quartz, or Smokey
Quartz, and, unlike Obsidian,
it doesn't bring buried emotions to the surface. Its role
is to soothe and calm.
Its colour alone is soothing, a deep blue-green that might
remind one of a secluded mountain meadow or the bottom of
the sea. It is primarily a fifth (throat) chakra
stone, but it can also be used for the heart or solar plexus.
As a solar plexus stone, it helps to ease fear, anxiety,
and guilt. In a chakra balancing layout it can be effectively
combined with Rhodochrosite. Rhodochrosite
helps to relax the diaphragm so that full, deep breathing
is possible; then chrysocolla helps to release the emotions
that accumulate in the solar plexus.
As a heart stone, it is somewhat comparable to Rose
Quartz; however, it releases emotions far more
As a throat stone, it is believed to stimulate not only
creativity, but confidence in creative expression by calming
and releasing fear.
Because of its soothing qualities, Chrysocolla is considered
by some crystal practitioners to be a feminine lunar stone,
with the energies of those goddesses, such as Kwan Yin,
who are viewed as comforters. It helps to draw out the characteristics
associated with nurturing goddess figures: patience, compassion,
forgiveness and tolerance (both for others and for oneself).
Some people have said that Chrysocolla looks like the earth
as seen from space. In combination with its Goddess-like
qualities, this makes it a natural stone to use in meditating
for world peace. Hold this special piece of the earth in
your hand, and visualize the peace and calm that emanate
from it spreading until they circle the globe.
