Chrysocolla: Healing Properties & Everyday Uses
The Meaning of Chrysocolla
Chrysocolla is a gorgeous crystal in swirling blues, greens, and browns, the colors of the Earth itself. It’s a magical stone that opens and expands your heart energy and communication abilities and grounds them into the earthly plane to help you express yourself in the world.
Known as “the goddess stone”, chrysocolla holds energy that is as beautiful and harmonious as it is stable and strong. It contains a rich archetypal feminine frequency, one that’s both loving, compassionate, and intuitive, as well as strong in conviction and holding the integrity of one's truth.
It connects the heart chakra with the throat chakra allowing you to communicate with love and understanding. It adds softness, acceptance, and wisdom to hard conversations you may need to have, and helps you express the truth of your emotions from an honest and clear place, choosing the best words to convey what your heart most wants to say.
This is an excellent stone to support musicians and those who use their voice to creatively express themselves, whether by singing, chanting mantras, acting on stage, or for anyone who speaks for a living, from lecturers and professors to YouTubers and content creators.
Chrysocolla is a copper-rich crystal that stimulates your action, strength, and fortitude, but its breakdown into soft greens and blues softens the copper’s energy, bringing calm, loving, warm-hearted vibrations through, supported by the resilience of the metal it contains within.
Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can use chrysocolla to bring healing into your everyday life!
Chrysocolla Healing Properties
Emotional & Mental Healing
Incredibly healing for the inner child, chrysocolla offers its nurturing, feminine energy as a support to help you release old wounds and blocks you’ve been holding onto since childhood.
It connects you back to the natural joy, exuberance, and wide-open perspective of your inner child, helping you express its delight, creativity, and abounding love in your life.
Chrysocolla’s nurturing energy calms anxiety and depression and helps you connect to the truth you hold within you and start to release the expectations and conditioning placed upon you from the outside world.
It’s a great stone to dispel anger and negativity, soothe frayed nerves, and ease frustration and irritation, cooling the inner fires. It helps you express what has been bottled up and bothering you, and to do it from a place of love and understanding.
Chrysocolla strengthens the body’s resistance to illness, supporting the immune system, and realigning the body’s energies to bring them into balance.
As a throat chakra stone, chrysocolla is excellent for healing and supporting the physical throat area. It can bring relief to a sore throat, swollen tonsils, laryngitis, or anything affecting the throat or neck area, and helps bring balance to the thyroid gland. It’s a good one to hold onto as you’re receiving any dental work, with the intention to reduce pain and increase healing.
It’s also said to be helpful in clearing the lungs and congestion, as the heart chakra rules the area of the lungs as well. Anything connected to the breath and speech is served well by chrysocolla’s energy as it increases the flow of breath, eases inflammation, calms pain, and speeds healing.
As it fills your heart with more love, chrysocolla helps you become more tolerant and understanding of others, release judgment and criticism, and listen to what other people have to say with open ears.
In this way it increases your wisdom, widening your perspective and allowing you to benefit from an expansive understanding of how other people think and express themselves in the world. It also deepens your own expression of the innate wisdom you hold, opening the channels for clear words of truth to funnel through you.
It reveals your highest knowledge and connects you to your wisest instincts, expanding your compassion both outwardly towards the world, and inwardly towards yourself.
