Chrysocolla is associated with elemental Water and is a powerful crystal when you are working with any sort of emotional issue. It is said to balance the emotions and provide comfort and nurturing when you are distressed. It can be used to help overcome depression or despair, soothe anxiety and keep nervous energy under control.
Chrysocolla is especially useful for anyone affected by emotional problems, including comfort eating and eating disorders, self-harm, attention seeking or uncontrollable behaviors. It is a very healing crystal for people who have suffered the trauma of rape or any type of childhood abuse, including sexual, physical and emotional abuse or neglect. Chrysocolla is often used to help a person connect with their inner child and provide that child with the unconditional love, support and nurturing they may have been deprived of in the past. In crystal healing Chrysocolla is used to treat PMT, mood swings, stomach cramps and menstrual problems. It is also reputed to ease labor and childbirth.
Magically, Chrysocolla is used as a 'prayer-stone' because of its ability to amplify energy. Whisper your hopes and dreams to the stone under the full Moon and then leave it outside in the moonlight. It is said that within three weeks you will see your wishes come true.
