Chrysocolla Slabs from Inspiration Mine, Miami, Arizona
Chrysocolla from the Inspiration Mine is much sought after for its beautiful figuring and combination of other copper secondaries, such as malachite.

Chrysocolla is a popular copper secondary among lapidaries. Even though chrysocolla cuts with standard wheels, we suggest being gentle in the coarser grits as it can chip out. This material can be polished with tin oxide, diamond, or green rouge.

Some chrysocolla tends to undercut when polished with tin oxide. When this happens, polishing with diamond and a quick follow up with green rouge should rectify the problem.
