Coming from a combination of the Greek words “chrysos” and “kolla” – “gold” and “glue,” it was first used by Theophrastus, the successor to Aristotle and the “father of botany,” in 315 BC to solder Gold. Chrysocolla is a specific blue, green colour referred to as Cyan and has been used for decorative carvings and jewellery since antiquity.
This is the ultimate crystal for the goddess woman in all of us with empowering and deeply feminine energy. It gives off tranquil beachy vibes, allowing you to calm your nerves, making it ideal for those who are burnt out. Every goddess needs the strength and wisdom to make compassionate decisions, communicate with grace, and practice forgiveness, which is the power Chrysocolla brings to the table. The perfect stone to recharge your batteries and prepare you for the challenges ahead. It is also used by healers to ease menstrual pain and cramps.

Conscious Crystal Sourcing
At House of Formlab we always try to source our crystals in an ethically minded way. We only choose high-quality pieces and work with trusted and reputable suppliers who also take ethics in the crystal supply chain very seriously.
Many of our suppliers buy directly from the mines and they undertake regular site visits during buying trips to ensure working conditions and low impact environmental protections are as claimed. None of our suppliers knowingly buy from mines with any child labour, poor or dangerous working conditions. Certain countries are known for dubious practices and we avoid sourcing from those regions.
Often crystals are not what the miners are digging for. More often than not they are byproducts found alongside more valuable elements such as are used in our mobile phones and TVs. This makes supply chains complicated but where we can we avoid minerals and crystals known to come from this type of operation.
Certificates are often hard to come by. There is still no overarching governing body that certifies crystals in the same way as diamonds are now tracked and certified – mainly due to the difference in value. The more outcry there is, the more chance is idea will gain traction. So keep asking and campaigning for ethically sourced crystals and together we can change the crystal universe.
Buying crystals is a learning process. We will make mistakes, everyone does, but rest assured we are trying our best to make the right choices and provide you with the crystal you can be proud of.
we use our intuition to choose a piece we feel is calling us for you – a piece that is absolutely meant to be yours. We are huge believers in the crystal chooses the owner, not the other way around.
We do our best to make sure that the listing photos and information accurately depicts what we have available so you have an idea of what is coming your way, but the rest is up to the universe.
With crystal-infused love,
