Item details

The stone at the centre of this piece is rather lovely, and the matte finish really draws out the colours well. Chrysocolla is one of the lesser known gemstones, but it is a fascinating mineral. It is sometimes confused with turquoise due to its color and its greasy vitreous luster. The name chyrsocolla comes from the Greek words for gold (chyrsos) and glue (kolla). It is a name that the Greeks applied to minerals used for soldering gold, but the term came to be used to refer to various green copper-bearing minerals.
The colours of the stone reminded me of the jewellery and other artwork we saw a few years ago on a trip to Egypt, so the simple banding and shape of the collar seemed a natural choice.
