Chrysocolla is a hydrated copper phyllosilicate mineral.
The name comes from the Ancient Greek: χρυσός κολλα (chrysos kolla), "gold glue", in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold, and was first used by Theophrastus in 315 BC. Due to being somewhat more common than turquoise, its wide availability, and vivid, beautiful blue and blue-green colors, chrysocolla has been popular for use as a gemstone for carvings and ornamental use since antiquity. It is often used in silversmithing and goldsmithing in place of turquoise and is relatively easy to work and shape.
