Simple Chrysocolla Ring in Sterling Silver
Stones First, Metal Second
What is that? Turquoise? Nope! This deep mesmerizing blue green stone is called chrysocolla and the chrysocolla from the Inspiration Mine is particularly rare and special. The Inspiration mine was located near Inspiration, Arizona and was well known as a copper mine until this captivating gem was located. While the mine operated, chrysocolla was removed as they could. We are so lucky to have come across this gorgeous teal blue mineral. While most Chrysocolla is soft and is stabilized with resins (ewww), this chrysocolla has a high opal content, making this gorgeous stone almost as hard as a quartz crystal and great for daily wear and adds a touch of nature to your outfit.

Stone name: Chrysocolla (chris-oh-cola) This chrysocolla is not a definite chemical compound but a hydrogel containing mainly SiO:, CuO and H2O, and minor amounts of Al2Q3, CaO and MgO. A cryptocrystalline phase is present in the chrysocolla, but its composition has not been determined. What this means is that chrysocolla is made of cryptocrystalline quartz (chalcedony), water and copper with traces of other minerals, making it similar to a jasper or agate in composition.

Let us know, we can discuss the ring you love with you and shape the band to slip over your finger when turned to the side, then when turned into place "lock" onto your finger.
