Chrysocolla occurs naturally in multicolored sky blues to bluish-greens. It occurs in many important copper deposits, and the copper in its chemical structure is responsible for the blues and greens. It often contains inclusions or veining of black and brown matrix material. It is also often coated by a druzy layer of glossy, clear quartz or intergrown together with quartz. It is a softer stone and care should be taken when wearing jewelry containing it.
Chrysocolla is found worldwide, and significant sources include Africa, Israel, Australia, Peru, Chile, Mexico and the united states. The most outstanding chrysocolla has come from many of the classic Arizona copper mines, including the Inspiration mine, Globe-Miami District, Gila County; the 70 Mine, Hayden, Gila County; Morenci, Greenlee County, and Ray, Pinal County. The locality of Ray is especially noted for its beautiful and intriguing stalagmites combined with Quartz.
