Chrysocolla Uses and Purposes – Overview
Chrysocolla is a teaching stone, encouraging us to reveal our highest knowledge so that others may benefit from our experiences. This may come in the form of speaking lovingly to a friend and offering insights, a teacher to a student, or by simply modeling the power of words, chosen wisely with knowledge of their impact in the world. 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] The highest form of Chrysocolla is Gem Silica, a crystallized form in which the Chrysocolla is infused in Quartz, offering a magnified version of all the Chrysocolla energies, and is the best for producing and/or experiencing sacred sound. Those who chant, sing or speak mantras will benefit most from Gem Silica.
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.
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.
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. 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.

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. It is also beneficial for high blood pressure, blood sugar levels, diabetes – particularly Type 2, and blood disorders and problems of the lungs.

Chrysocolla Emotional Healing Energy
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.
Chrysocolla opens bottled emotions that block the mind from thinking clearly , and stimulates balance and wholeness. It also helps men to show their vulnerable feelings and recovery from violence by partners of either sex.
Chrysocolla Chakra Healing and Balancing Energy
Chrysocolla is powerful for opening and stimulating the Throat Chakra, allowing one to channel the loving knowledge of the heart to others. 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.
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 natural release.
Also aligning with the Heart Chakra, Chrysocolla calms and helps ease emotional heartache, providing strength and balance. It further increases the capacity to love.
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.
