The name of Gemstone ‘Chrysocolla’ is derived from the Greek word “chryso-” which means gold and “kolla” which means adhesive material.
In ancient times, goldsmiths used a variety of ores to connect gold into alloys, one of which was chrysocolla, hence the name.
However, it is uncertain whether Chrysocolla at that time and Chrysocolla today refer to the same mineral.
There are many stones with intricate black and brown patterns on the blue, light blue, and green backgrounds.

It is a mineral formed in copper veins, and strictly speaking, chrysocolla itself is a fine granular crystal. However, in reality, it is often coexisting with malachite (peacock stone) that also crystallizes in the copper deposit to form a lump, and since the main component is silicate, it was named chrysocolla.
Chrysocolla itself is very fragile and has a hardness of 2 to 4, but in many cases it is in a state of closely coexisting with quartz, chalcedony, opal, etc., in which case the hardness increases.
In particular, the one that has been soaked with quartz and solidified in its natural state has a hardness of 7, which makes it possible to polish it. In the United States, this is called “Gem Silica,” which is very popular as a jewelery item, and good quality ones are highly priced.
Chrysocolla from Eilat, Israel, coexists with turquoise, malachite, and azurite. What is called “Eilat Stone” has a legend that it is a stone held by King Solomon.
Recently, a stone in which a total of four types of shatterkite, malachite, and smoky quartz coexist, centering on chrysocolla, is sometimes called the distribution name “Quantum Quattro Silica”.
