Since it forms in regions with high copper oxidation, it can be found in countries or locations with copper deposits. In Europe, Cornwall, England is noted to have high occurrence of Chrysocolla formations. In South America, Chile is a notable source location and in Africa, it can be found in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In the US, several states were identified to have significant occurrence of Chrysocolla formation. These states include Pennsylvania, Utah, New Mexico and the most notable source location in the US is Arizona.
Since the formation and composition of Chrysocolla itself is a wonder in the mineral and gemstone world, unless you’d purchase Chrysocolla jewelry, this is a gemstone that may not come along your way every day. Touchstone Gallery is fortunate to be able to showcase this outstanding gem and we’re inviting you to visit us and see the specimens of Chrysocolla up close and personal.
