Chrysocolla is mix of blue, green, brown and tan tones, somewhat alike to the colors found in natural turquoise and lapis lazuli, ranging from rich and vibrant to subtle and understated. It has a semi-textured surface with a finish that varies from light gloss to matte. Chrysocolla is a good choice when use in short necklace and earring designs that are protected from heavy abuse.
Stabilizing is a process to make a stone hard enough to manufacture into a bead. There are many different methods of stabilizing. Many processes use a resin base that is forced into the stone under pressure. This makes the softer material hard enough to be cut, drilled, polished, and made into jewelry.
