Brooch, Chrysocolla

An organically triangular, large, deep turquoise and olive green, gently domed Chrysocolla, set in to a plain Sterling Silver Brooch.

I bought this stone amongst individually selected Tibetan Turquoises, but later it stood out amongst them because of it’s yellowish central cloud.
On further inspection, though, I feel it’s much closer to Chrysocolla than Turquoise, in these photos though it could still be Tibtetan Turquoise.
Either way it is intensely beautiful, so it doesn’t matter which it is, does it.

Very rich with a good turquoise body, with a brown matrix scattered through, and contrasting with, the fine veins.

This deep subtlety is framed by a plain Sterling Silver edge, decorated with a single step, cleanly outlining and defining the stone.

This brooch is fairly heavy, so it’s best worn on a medium to strong fabric.

No maintenence required, other than an occasional rub with a Silver Polishing cloth, the stone itself doesn’t need any polishing.

Though remember, Turquoise and Chrysocolla don’t like chemicals or washing, as sometimes it will affect their colour.
