Chrysocolla is a Dispeller Energizer crystal. Dispeller Crystals are used to rid you of an undesirable part of your life. Sometimes in your life you need to rid yourself of things you have but no longer want. You want to get rid of pains, sickness, worry, and a host of unpleasant feelings. For these needs, the Dispeller talismans that form in the orthorhombic system are needed. These “diamond shape” internal crystal arrangements are similar to the cubic system but have one elongated axis. Chrysocolla dispells fear and anger.
Absorber Energizers, like Chrysocolla, are mostly opaque and function more like batteries. They can serve to augment your energy during periods when you are not at your peak. The green color ray exhibited by Chrysocolla, for example, augments and amplifies its earth Energizer power for growth and development.
Chrysocolla which is blue in color is one of the natural birthstones of those born as the world awaits the vernal equinox and spring (February 1 - March 19). This is a time when new life is about to burst forth, a time of faith and trust. Blue crystals bring you patience and respect.
Chrysocolla which is turquoise in color is one of the natural birthstones of those born as spring begins (20 March to 19 April). Chrysocolla crystals bring you discovery and balance. Their vibrations help you find yourself and return to equilibrium.
Chrysocolla is one of the zodiac stones for those born under the sign, Sagittarius, between November 22 and December 21, the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter. Sagittarians are optimistic, kind, and adventurous, and their outlook on life is extremely positive.
Light blue Chrysocolla is the color of shallow pools of water reflecting the sky as winter gives way to spring. Its color ray helps us reflect on, question, and relax in our acceptance of the life we have. Light blue talismans help us develop patience, reconcile differences, or seek forgiveness. They’re excellent for recovery efforts from addictions or destructive patterns, aid in curbing tempers and help us become more dependable and cheerful. Light blue crystals also assist in dealing with grief, letting go of the past, and curing guilt.
Turquoise Chrysocolla reflects the color of the world at the vernal equinox, as the blues of winter melt into the greens of spring. It is a fresh, welcome energy that moves us to serenity as new growth and life emerge. It brings hope, discovery, and balance. The turquoise ray tempers excess restores calm after a storm, relieves stress, and neutralizes extremes. It helps us moderate aggressiveness and deal with rage. It brings us back to the center. In lighter shades, turquoise energy promotes inner harmony and peace through spiritual understanding. Darker, richer stones bring considerable power -- and flexibility. They counter intolerance and let us adapt to new ideas and environments.
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.
Chrysocolla utilizes Water energy, the energy of stillness, quiet strength, and purification. It embodies potentialities unrealized. It is yielding, formless, yet powerful. The Water element brings the power of regeneration and rebirth. It is the energy of the circle of life. Use Chrysocolla crystals to enhance any space that you use for repose, calm reflection, or prayer. Water energy is traditionally associated with the North area of a home or room. It is associated with the Career and Life Path area, its flowing energy assuring a balance of energy as your life unfolds and flows.
As a meditation aid, Chrysocolla is used in meditations that are concerned with affairs of the heart. If you are seeking understanding and answers about loved ones and their intentions, use a Chrysocolla in your quest for answers. It will brighten your outlook.
Chrysocolla is also a stone of “earth-grounding” and is valuable in preventing one from losing touch with the conscious mind during deep meditations. It provides strength and protection during vision quests and astral travel, and due to its high spirituality, acts to improve meditation and to further peace of mind.
In The Crystal Bible, Judy Hall tells us that Chrysocolla is a tranquil and sustaining stone. She notes it calms, cleanses, and reenergizes the energy body; heals heartache; and can open psychic vision. It encourages and enhances self-awareness and inspires creativity. In 101 Power Crystals, she notes it is excellent for protection against nightmares when placed under a pillow.
Cassandra Eason in The New Crystal Bible tells us that Chrysocolla is the "Stone of Wise Women" and the symbol of musicians. It is a stone that helps people cope with multiple, demanding caregiver responsibilities.
Robert Simmons agrees. In The Book of Stones, he tells us it is a stone of empowerment for feminine energies and that it radiates a gentle power. He notes it stimulates the throat chakra and harmonizes the Heart Chakra. Naisha Ahsian in the same book notes that Chrysocolla assists in the release of stress, anxiety and other fear-based imbalances. She tells us it also can help in releasing us from fiery energies and angry words.
