Sonora Sunset Cabochons (Chrysocolla Cuprite)

Sonora Sunset, or Sonora Sunrise, is a Chrysocolla Cuprite stone. 

The mostly solid red designer cabochons are sometimes called Crimson Cuprite.

Colorful semi precious gemstone Chrysocolla Cuprite cabochons. The blue/green is Chrysocolla, the red is Cuprite, (but it also has Chalcotricite, which is the orangey red), and the black is Iron. 

This Chrysocolla Cuprite is from the Milpillas Mine, Cuitata, Municipio de Cananea, Sonora, Mexico. The mine opened in 2006. Though most copper mines are open pit mines, this material is covered by 1000 feet of gravel!

Though the mine is still producing, most of this material has been mined out.

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.

Chrysocolla is named from the Greek chrysos - "gold" and kolla - "glue" in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold. Cuprite is named from the Latin, cuprum, meaning copper.
