Chrysocolla in Quartz (Gem Silica) Rough

Chrysocolla in Quartz, or Gem Silica, is the rarest and most desirable form of Chrysocolla. This material cuts and polishes like a charm and has fine translucence. It contains other copper secondaries, such as malachite and cuprite, which makes for stunning gemstones.

Chrysocolla is a secondary copper mineral with a blue-green color, that some people mistake for turquoise. The main difference is turquoise contains phosphorus and chrysocolla does not.

Chrysocolla in Quartz (Gem Silica) takes a good polish with tin oxide or diamond, followed with green rouge (Zam is a brand name for green rouge). Mohs hardness 5.0 to 6.0.
