CHRYSOCOLLA: Finding Peace in Challenging Times

Updated: Jul 4

I love hosting Kim Dowdell's classes and have learnt so much from her over the years about the crystal kingdom and 'stone medicine'. One of the crystals we discussed after yesterday's class on BREATHING, is Chrysocolla, I have a necklace and always feel the benefit of wearing it, so I thought I'd share this amazing crystal with you.

In moments of challenge and uncertainty, wise words from the heart can offer a soothing and peaceful refuge. One such source of tranquillity is the stunning blue-green crystal, Chrysocolla.

Known for its vibrant hues reminiscent of the ocean, Chrysocolla is a hydrous copper silicate mineral typically found in the oxidation zones of copper deposits. It is part of the same mineral family as turquoise, malachite, azurite – so often grow together That's the geology 'bit' - but this beautiful crystal is not only a visual delight but also a powerful tool for emotional and spiritual healing, so let's explore some of those.

Tapping into Inner Strength

Chrysocolla helps you tap into your inner strength, providing the resilience needed to move forward when faced with challenges. It helps you maintain calm amidst chaos, warding off and protecting against negative influences in your life.

Incorporating Chrysocolla into your daily life can bring about profound emotional and spiritual benefits. Whether you're seeking emotional healing, enhanced communication, empowerment, peace, physical healing, or creative inspiration, this beautiful crystal offers a path to inner tranquillity and strength.

The Benefits of Chrysocolla

  1. Emotional Healing: Chrysocolla is renowned for its calming effects on emotions. It helps to alleviate feelings of guilt and fosters forgiveness, making it a go-to crystal for reducing stress, anxiety, and emotional distress.

  2. Enhanced Communication: As a stone of communication, Chrysocolla aids in expressing thoughts and feelings clearly. It's particularly beneficial for improving communication in relationships and public speaking, helping you articulate your ideas with ease.

  3. Empowerment: This crystal encourages self-awareness and inner balance. It fosters confidence and the courage to take action, making it an excellent choice for those needing a boost in self-esteem and personal power.

  4. Peace and Tranquillity: Often associated with peace, Chrysocolla promotes a meditative state. It's an excellent stone for meditation and mindfulness practices, helping you find serenity amidst life's chaos.

  5. Physical Healing: On a physical level, Chrysocolla is believed to aid in detoxifying the body, reducing stiffness, and improving the health of the liver and lungs. It also helps with throat-related conditions such as sore throats and thyroid issues. Chrysocolla  is also fabulous for the womb – period pain, irregular menstruation, after abortion, miscarriage, hysterectomy etc.

  6. Creative Expression: Chrysocolla stimulates creativity and inspires innovative thinking. Artists, writers, and musicians may find it particularly beneficial for unlocking their creative potential.

  7. Chrysocolla empowers you to speak your authentic truth in a compassionate and wise manner. However, it's also important to recognize the power of silence. Sometimes, silence is more effective than speaking. Learn to appreciate the stillness of silence and understand when not to speak.

The blue hues of Chrysocolla are associated with the throat chakra, making it a powerful stone for those who struggle to find their voice. If you feel lost for words, this stone can help you become more articulate in speech or writing. Try using Chrysocolla during a Tibetan Meditation Pose to amplify its effects... see description and button below.

Chrysocolla is sometimes mixed with other minerals like malachite or azurite, enhancing its beauty and potency.

Tibetan meditation pose


This unscrambles the energies making for clearer communication, clearer thinking, improved left/right brain integration and cheers you up in no time at all, so great for when you are feeling sad, confused or angry.  It returns your energy circuits to default, reduces stress, and encourages release of past emotional baggage or trauma.

It is sometimes considered to be a blocking pose but in reality, if you are over-stimulated, you are naturally trying to unscramble so that you can understand more clearly, so it is the total opposite of being blocked, it is about wanting to be open and understanding.

Sit [or stand], cross the arms over the chest with hands under the armpits, thumbs out and up. Close your eyes, breath and smile.  Stay in this position until you feel calm.

Bring your hands into prayer position and take a couple of breaths.

Put your arms out in front of you, palms facing outwards. Feet are still crossed.

Cross the wrists and intertwine your fingers, pull them towards you, up and under, so your clasped hands are sitting under your chin. (click on the button below for visual of this)

Close your eyes, breath and smile. Hold for as long as you want – a minute?
