Chrysocolla is regarded as a Stone of Communication. It is devoted to
expression, empowerment and teaching. The serenity of its turquoise-blue
color gets rid of negative energies, calms, and allows truth and inner
wisdom to surface and be heard. A peaceful stone, it emphasizes the
power our words and actions have on those around us and encourages
compassion and strengthening of character.
Chrysocolla is a stone of empowerment of the feminine energies, teaching
that genuine power is best expressed through gentleness. It is a stone of
the Goddess, and those who resonate with it will likely feel her ancient and
enduring energies rising within themselves. [Simmons, 114]
It is the stone of forgiveness, peace, and the strengthening of emotional
bonds. It encourages compassion and helps us recover our natural
spontaneity. [Megemont, 54]
Chrysocolla is a teaching stone, encouraging us to reveal our highest
knowledge so that others may benefit from our experiences. It is also a
valuable tool for those who speak for a living. [Ahsian, 115]
Chrysocolla is a talisman of musicians. It is an excellent charm for learning
new musical instruments or joining a choir, orchestra or theatre group, and
to have the confidence to play in public. [Eason, 231]
Chrysocolla is a stone of wise women everywhere. Worn or carried, it helps
older women to express their knowledge and experience through writing,
painting, music, crafts or acting. It is a remarkable gift for first-time
grandmothers and great-grandmothers to help balance their new caring
role and is a good stone for those who may feel nervous at home at night if
living alone. [Eason, 231]
One strange property of Chrysocolla known since antiquity, is its property
of encouraging people to stay at home. It is the stone of monks, hermits
and prisoners, diminishing the anxiety and depression that often
accompanies seclusion. People with wandering temperaments, who never
stay in one place, would benefit from it. [Megemont, 54]
Chrysocolla supports those who work in the computer industry and
accountants by calming emotional stress. For designers and inventors, it
encourages inspiration by combining creative ideas with new practical
applications. [Mella, 80, 129-131] Within the home, Chrysocolla draws off
the negative energies of rocky relationships and situations that are
constantly changing. It provides stability, acceptance and great inner
strength. [Hall, 111]
This stone’s calming effect helps with nervous disorders, such as anxiety
and depression, feelings of guilt, and hyperkinetic movement. It is also a
beneficial stone for women by reducing menstrual pain and is conducive to
happy pregnancies by relieving the anxieties of first-time
mothers. [Megemont, 54]
Chrysocolla assists in the regulation of the thyroid and adrenals. It is
excellent for sore throats, laryngitis and for support of the larynx in
general. [Ahsian, 115] It is also beneficial for high blood pressure, blood
sugar levels, diabetes - particularly Type 2, and blood disorders and
problems of the lungs. [Eason, 231]
Chrysocolla aids digestion, and treats problems associated with hip joints
and hip replacement, arthritis, and rheumatism. [Eason, 231] It strengthens
muscles and alleviates muscle cramps [Hall, 112], and helps with
infections, fever, burns and scars. [Gienger, 27]
On an emotional level, Chrysocolla teaches the value of both expression
and the virtue of keeping silent. One can speak and say nothing or remain
silent and speak volumes. This stone’s soothing energy dispels highly
charged emotional situations, angry words or fear-filled sarcasm, to allow
one’s truth to be shared with wisdom and true communication. [Ahsian,
Chrysocolla opens bottled emotions that block the mind from thinking
clearly [Mella, 80], and stimulates balance and wholeness. It also helps
men to show their vulnerable feelings and recovery from violence by
partners of either sex. [Eason, 231]
Chrysocolla is powerful for opening and stimulating the Throat Chakra,
allowing one to channel the loving knowledge of the heart to
others. [Ahsian, 115] It allows for clear communication of one’s innate inner
wisdom, even discerning what that wisdom may be. The surprise of hearing
oneself speak aloud a thought more profound than what one had in mind
demonstrates this gift of expression. [Simmons, 114]
The Throat Chakra is the voice of the body, a pressure valve that allows
the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked or out of
balance, it can affect the health of the other chakras. In balance, it allows
for the expression of what we think and what we feel. We can communicate
our ideas, beliefs, and emotions. When the throat chakra is in balance and
open, we can bring our personal truth out into the world. We have an easy
flow of energy within the body and spirit. The energy that springs upward
from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and
Also aligning with the Heart Chakra, Chrysocolla calms and helps ease
emotional heartache, providing strength and balance. It further increases
the capacity to love. [Melody, 204]
The Heart Chakra regulates our interaction with the external world and
controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing
ability to be ourselves within the environment. When the heart chakra is out
of balance, we may feel either controlling or controlled in a relationship and
become critical of the little foibles of others. We may find ourselves having
inappropriately strong emotional responses to everyday external stimuli.
Green crystal energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the
heart chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly.
We can deal with the ebbs and flows of emotional relationships,
understand their cyclic nature, and accept the changes.
Chrysocolla stimulates the initiative qualities of one’s character to release
the distress of negative emotions and further the understanding of others.
By accepting the perfection of the universe, it provides insights necessary
to help re-align the physical body, intellect and emotions. [Melody,
205] This self-awareness and inner balance imparts confidence and
enhances personal power. [Hall, 112] It helps one attune to the Earth and
communicate with its spiritual forces, providing direction to do what is
required to help the Earth heal itself. [Melody, 204]
Light blue Chrysocolla helps us reflect on, question, and relax in our
acceptance of the life we have. Light blue talismans help us develop
patience, reconcile differences, or seek forgiveness. They are excellent for
recovery efforts from addictions or destructive patterns, aid in curbing
tempers, and help us become more dependable and cheerful. Light blue
crystals also assist in dealing with grief, letting go of the past, and curing
Turquoise Chrysocolla welcome energy that moves us to serenity as new
growth and life emerges. It brings hope, discovery and balance. The
turquoise ray tempers excess, restores calm after a storm, relieves stress,
and neutralizes extremes. It helps us moderate aggressiveness and deal
with rage. It brings us back to center. In lighter shades, turquoise energy
promotes inner harmony and peace through spiritual understanding.
Darker, richer stones bring considerable power -- and flexibility. They
counter intolerance and let us adapt to new ideas and environments.
Chrysocolla is a stone of “earth-grounding” and is valuable in preventing
one from losing touch with the conscious mind during deep meditations. It
provides strength and protection during vision quests and astral travel, and
due to its high spirituality, acts to improve meditation and to further peace
of mind. [Melody, 669]
The Divinatory meaning of Chrysocolla: You may need to be generous to
someone you dislike avoiding hurting their feelings. [Eason, 231]
Chrysocolla is one of the zodiac stones for those born under the
sign, Sagittarius, between November 22 and December 21, the end of
harvest season and the beginning of winter.
Chrysocolla can be a protective amulet against obstructive neighbors,
malice via the computer or phone, or spiteful remarks about age or physical
appearance. It creates a reverse energy allowing the attackers to feel the
shamefulness of their remarks. [Eason, 231]
Chrysocolla utilizes water energy, the energy of stillness, quiet strength,
and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding,
formless, yet powerful. The Water element brings power of regeneration
and rebirth. It is the energy of the circle of life. Use Chrysocolla crystals to
enhance any space that you use for repose, calm reflection, or prayer.
Water energy is traditionally associated with the North area of a home or
room. It is associated with the Career and Life Path area, its flowing energy
assuring a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows.
