Chrysocolla cut into domes and dice and polygons are common

Chrysocolla is usually cut into domes and dice. Some items may be cut into polygons (angular or icy), but this is not very common. It is usually done only for collectors, not for use in jewelry. Most chrysoculas are oval and free-cut, but fancy shapes are also very common. More popular shapes include circles, tears, trillions, baguettes and water drops. Calibrated sizes have a greater right to action. 

Chrysocolla druzy can also be cut into cabochons and used in jewelry.  Stones that are cut and polished from Chrysocolla are best used in pendants and earrings, which are less likely to knock against something and break. Another important thing to keep in mind about chrysocolla, is that it’s a soft mineral and therefore very sensitive to water. When working with it, do not leave it sitting in water for long periods of time. Chrysocolla cuts well using both standard Diamond wheels as well as cerium oxide belts. Polishing with diamond and green rouge (zam) will work wonders when polishing softer Copper minerals, like chrysocolla.

Chrysocolla is an incredibly beautiful and vibrant copper silicate mineral. It has been used in sculpture and jewelry throughout history. This ancient stone has always been highly valued and continues to be well loved and known for its vivid color, unique properties, and versatility.

Chrysocolla usually does not heal. However, in some cases it may be coated with a colorless resin.

Care and maintenance of jewelry with chrysocolla stones. Chrysocolla is a relatively soft gemstone, so you should always take care of it to maintain its attractiveness. This stone can be easily scratched with precious stones and other jewelry, so you should wear it separately and clean it. When cleaning Chrysocolla gemstones, use a soft cloth or brush and plain soap and water.
