For thousands of years, as legend tells it, chrysocolla has been a stone of conciliation and reassurance thought the world.
In ancient Egypt, it was called the ‘wise stone’ as those who wore it generally came up with clever comprises when it seems and unbearable pass in negotiations. It was also thought it would protect the wearer against psychological damage as well. Lore also tells that this stone had the power to make more violent people more sensitive and tolerant, which is apparently why Cleopatra carried chrysocolla with her everywhere she went.
