Chrysocolla is a copper silicate and is found in the copper oxide zones of major copper deposits. It is usually found with other copper ores, most commonly Malachite.
Druse (or Drusy) is the term for tiny quartz crystals formed on a mineral, although often it is used for any type of tiny crystal coating, especially on cabochons with a natural crystal surface.
Chrysocolla is known as a healing stone among Native American Indian cultures where it was used for strengthening the body's resistance and bringing about calm feelings where there is upset.
The name Chrysocolla first appears in the writings of Theophrastus (315 BC). Chrysocolla is named from the Greek chrysos - "gold" and kolla - "glue" in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold.
Chrysocolla is associated with serenity, tranquility, peace, patience, tolerance, acceptance, unconditional love, calmness, hope, gentleness and sensitivity.
