This listing is for one piece of beautiful blue-green chrysocolla from Erongo, Namibia.

Chrysocolla forms from oxidizing copper ore. So it's essentially copper rust!

Moh's hardness: 2.5-3.5

This stone is relatively fragile and can break into pieces. Additionally, as a copper derivative, it should be handled with care and hands washed after handling before eating. Do not put this in your mouth!
