Chrysocolla is often confused with turquoise and azurite‏

Chrysocolla can be difficult to detect by its chemical composition because it does not have a definite and ‎uniform chemical composition‏.‏‎ Its chemical formula can vary depending on different impurities‏.‏

Basically, any silicate containing Copper in a spherical shape, blue to green, cannot be a rock except ‎chrysocolla‏.‏‎ Chrysocolla can often be identified by its hardness, unique color, and interesting patterns‏.‏

However, depending on the exact composition, the hardness can also vary, but in most cases, Chrysocolla ‎stones can be detected by scratch testing‏.‏ Due to its visual similarities in color and luster, Chrysocolla is often confused with Turquoise and azurite‏.‏

Chrysocolla is slightly softer than turquoise‏.‏ Smithsonian is similar in appearance, but its color is slightly lighter and harder‏.‏ Varicose veins are very similar, but they are usually much greener in color and usually much harder than ‎Chrysocolla‏

The most important mines of Chrysocolla ‎are Israel, Congo (Zaire), Chile, United Kingdom, Cluj, Katanga (Shaba), Mexico‏,‏Peru, Russia and the United States (Arizona, Utah, Idaho, New Mexico, Michigan and Pennsylvania).‎

Arizona is now recognized as the best producer of Chrysocolla‏.‏‎ The Timna copper mine was famous in ‎ancient Israel for producing mixed Chrysocolla‏.‏‎ Western Australia is also known for producing chrysocolla ‎azurite quasi-minerals‏.‏

Other notable chrysocolla locations in the world include; Mexico, Peru, Chile, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire), Australia, Russia, Cornwall in England, France, and Israel..‏
