CHRYSOCOLLA PERU 925 STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
Chrysocolla, the king of carbonate copper gemstones, is a captivating, vibrant blue-green color that is frequently confused with turquoise due to its aesthetic similarities. It is frequently found jumbled with malachite, turquoise, and azurite, forming the Eilat stone, a beautiful mixed gemstone (named after the city where it was once mined). According to legend, Eilat stone was first quarried at King Solomon's mines in Africa, which explains why it is Israel's national stone. Chrysocolla's rich, brilliant blue and green colors are suggestive of looking down from space on the earth's surface.
