Healing Properties of Chrysocolla
Spiritual: Chrysocolla empowers feminine energies and is a stone of the Goddess. It brings gifts of balance and serenity so that we can communicate with the spiritual energies of Mother Earth herself. It provides a deeply grounding energy that feels safe and strong, and allows us to live from a place of very real love and to communicate that love accordingly. When placed in the home or other space, its energy transmutes negativity and fear, and creates a cozy sanctuary for daily living and spiritual exploration. Chrysocolla is also a valuable tool for anyone engaged in sound healing, whether through talking, music, or sound vibration. Chrysocolla is attuned to the Root, Heart and Throat Chakras and linked to the astrological signs of Taurus, Gemini, Virgo. It is connected to the element of Water and vibrates to the number 5.
Emotional: Chrysocolla is a very soothing stone for the emotional body. It releases negative emotions and asks us to take ownership of our own lives. It reminds us that our own experiences, knowledge, and contributions are vitally important, and that we must properly value ourselves and claim our rightful self-confidence. Chrysocolla encourages us to show our true selves to the world, without fear or masks, allowing us to share our own deep wisdom and consciously give good energy to the world. Chrysocolla is also an excellent stone to help heal and strengthen relationships which have been shaken by stressful situations, and can help us return to healthy and loving interactions.
Mental: Chrysocolla helps us to keep a cool and calm head, particularly during negotiations and other important discussions. It reminds us to stay focused on our primary aim and to be willing to concede points and compromise as necessary in order to get our own needs and desires met. Chrysocolla urges us to strive for win-win solutions and promotes peaceful and loving communication. It can also help us to stay neutral when we are facilitating conversations between two opposing groups. Chrysocolla is one of the very best stones for communication, helping us to know when to speak and what to say, as well as when to be silent. It is an excellent stone for teachers, politicians, public speakers, singers, writers, and anyone else who relies on words for their living.
Physical: Chrysocolla is used by metaphysical healers to treat infections. It is also believed to lower blood pressure, reduce cortisol levels, and treat stress-related illnesses. It is most commonly used for soothing sore throats and upper respiratory illnesses, as well as for cramps caused by digestive disturbances and menstruation. Chrysocolla is a wonderful talisman for doctors, nurses, medical intuitives, and other healthcare professionals, because it is believed to help them accurately perceive what is needed in order to bring the physical body into perfect health. Chrysocolla’s calm energy also makes it highly recommended as a decorative piece in doctor’s offices and other medical facilities.
Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.
Ethically Sourced Chrysocolla
I first met the owner of the mine and lapidary in 2014 at the Gem and Mineral Show in Tucson, Arizona. At that time, he was set up with a single table and the only major Gem Show he attended was in Tucson. While most lapidaries sell their tumbled stone in pre-packaged bags by the pound or kilo, this seller allowed me to cherry pick through his stock and buy only the best. Since then, his spot in Tucson has expanded to four tables under a tent and he now sells at two of the major European shows. It has been fun to watch our businesses grow.
In 2018, I asked the owner if he would be willing to help connect me with a rural school in Peru near his mine. I told him that I wanted to “give back” to the communities that provided these beautiful crystals. He was pleased by my request and later that year introduced me to the principle of a suitable Peruvian school. We hope to begin supporting this school in the 2019-2020 school year.

Safe Handling of Chrysocolla
Cleaning Healing Crystals
There are many ways to cleanse, charge, and set intentions with crystals.
Before cleaning your healing crystals, always consider the geology of each stone. Some stones are sensitive to water and/or sunlight. Best Practice is to keep your stones out of direct sunlight when you’re not working with them, simply because the sunlight will fade the crystal’s color over time. This is especially true for transparent and translucent gems. Remember crystals grow underground where it’s nice and dark! Stones that are formed in dry desert conditions may be harmed by immersion in water. This is especially true for fragile and porous stones.
One of the easiest and most effective way to energetically clean crystals is to smudge them with smoke from plants like sage, juniper, cedar, lavender, tobacco, etc. Each plant has its own unique smell and spiritual property. Moonrise Crystals smudges with white mountain sage (for cleansing) and sweet grass (for kindness) before the crystals are sent to their forever home with you.
Other common ways to energetically clean healing crystals are to set stones near a piece of Carnelian, Citrine, Kyanite, Selenite or other stones that are energy purifiers. Be sure to pamper the purifying stones regularly so that they can continue to do their job properly. Citrine and Kyanite are self-cleansers that don’t “need” extra care. But they will love getting extra attention from you!
If a stone is doing a lot of heavy energetic work, one of the best ways to restore its energy reserves is to allow it to rest on the earth, next to a plant. A potted plant inside the house works just fine. Let the crystal rest overnight or longer, until its energy feels bright and sparkly again.
Charging and Setting Intentions with Healing Crystals
There is no right/wrong way to charge and set intentions. But here’s a few ways that it’s done at Moonrise Crystals.
Cleanse the crystals and yourself. It is good to take the time to physically clean stones before doing spiritual work. It sets a tone of purity, respect, and reverence. Hold the crystals or be near them. Sing or talk to the stones. Tell them about yourself and what you are working on. Ask them for their help. You don’t need to use any special words, simply speak from the heart. Treat the crystals like your best friends and closest allies. They want to help you.
If you feel shy or awkward, you can also write your message on a piece of paper and set the stones on top of it. Music, including singing bowls, can also be used. The most important thing is simply to be present with the stones and focused on setting the intention.
This can be done at any time, day or night. However, nighttime is often a particularly good time for setting intentions. Take the crystals outside, if possible. You can talk to your crystals outside, or you may just want to sit near them and meditate or pray.
- During the Full Moon, energy is amplified. It is also a wonderful time to celebrate in the bright light when your intentions are already going well and you want to keep the trend going.
- The New Moon is a time for new beginnings. The darkness is like planting a seed underground. It will grow up into the Light.
- Eclipses, meteorite showers, and other astronomical events will add their own unique energy.
- Knowing where the moon is astrologically, can also add a fun element to intention setting. The moon changes signs every 2-3 days.
