Today, I’m starting with Chrysocolla:
Chrysocolla is a “feel better” stone. It brings a calming serenity to all situations. A serene stone, this stone is beneficial for women and encourages creativity. It can promote quiet inner balance and strength, create confidence, and increase one’s capacity for love. This stone also helps to overcome phobias, mental tensions, and temper issues. Use chrysocolla to alleviate guilt, promote truth telling, and bring joy to the ever-changing nature of your personal situations.
The name chrysocolla means “gold glue.” It was once used to help bond intricate gold pieces.
Chrysocolla was mined by the ancient Egyptians. It may have been mistaken for malachite in records, as the two stones are similar and are often found together.
This stone is primarily associated with the heart chakra. Some believe it has the power to realign and energize all chakras
You can place this stone in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.
This stone is associated with Taurus, Gemini, and Virgo.
Chrysocolla is believed to help women who suffer from PMS and menstrual cramps. It can help fend off negative emotions, heal heartache, reduce mental tension, detoxify the body, and heal infections.
