Pagan Blog Project C is for Chysocolla

Chrysocolla is a receptive stone, associated with the planet Venus and the element of Water.  It is known as a Goddess stone because of it's affinity for communication.

The stone is primarily found in England, Chile, Israel, the Congo and the United States.

Communication is the primary association for this stone,  and its also known to have the magickal properties of peace, wisdom, and love-all of which are pretty closely tied to open, honest communication.  

Chrysocolla is a stone of peace, and peace of mind.  It is known to help one keep from getting carried away with one's own thoughts and illusions.  Holding a piece of the stone in your hand is said to drive off unreasonable fear and illusions. 

Wearing the stone gives increased powers of discretion and increased wisdom.

Visualizing a love while holding a piece of chyrsocolla helps to attract one to you.  In fact, using chrysocolla with any type of visualization helps to give extra energy and action to your words.

In it's healing modality chrysocolla is a very soothing stone, very calming.  That makes it especially helpful in treating nervous disorders such as stress and anxiety, even depression. 

As always, nothing said here is meant to substituted for medical advice.  If you have any medical concerns please see a professional. 

This stone is also known to help with hip pain, rheumatism and arthritis, and blood disorders.  It is known to ease menstrual cramping.

Chrysocolla is also helpful in detoxifying the liver, kidneys and intestines, as well as helping to regenerate the pancreas.  

It is also believed to be helpful in balancing insulin levels, and therefore in the treatment of diabetes.  

Again, let me stress, using the stone merely helps these conditions, it is not a substitute for medical treatment.  

Overall, chrysocolla is a very centering, grounding stone, one that helps us achieve moderation in both our thoughts and our bodies.


  1. I <3 chrysocolla! Back when I was building jewelry, I was bordering on obsessed. It's hard to find the really deep rich peacock shades that I prefer. The lighter ones that tend more towards green are nice, just not my thing. Maybe I should go back to wearing my chrysocolla earrings though, since it's calming!

    1. I haven't seen the deeper colors that you're talking about, I've only ever seen the lighter. They sound gorgeous though, kind of like the really labradorite that is my absolute favorite.
