Chrysocolla Mineral Specimen Rock 1 - 1.5 Inch 
Information Card Included

 

   Chrysocolla is often confused with turquoise because of its blue-green color. Like turquoise, chrysocolla is used primarily for making jewelry, but is softer and more fragile.
   Chrysocolla's chemical name is hydrous copper silicate, Cu2H2Si2O5(OH)4. It is found in the oxidation zone of copper deposits. When chrysocolla is found on the ground, it is a strong indicator that valuable copper deposits can be found beneath the surface.


Picture is representative of the specimen you will receive.  Each rock is unique and will vary in shape, size and appearance.  No two rocks will be exactly alike.
