This gemstone has a propensity to mix with other minerals, so pure chrysocolla is quite rare. It is these mixtures with other minerals and compounds that produce chrysocolla’s unique color combinations and swirls. This stone is almost always opaque, and when it is cut and polished, chrysocolla has a high-shine, vitreous luster.

The LC sources its chrysocolla from Australia, but deposits can also be found in Chile, Israel, Mexico, Peru, Rusia and the U.S.
