Gem silica is a bluish green to greenish blue variety of chalcedony that receives its vivid color from the presence of copper. It is often known as “chrysocolla chalcedony” or “gem silica chrysocolla.”

The Miami-Inspiration Mine in Arizona is the best recent source of high-quality gem silica.  Gem silica has been produced occasionally and in limited amounts from locations in New Mexico, Mexico, Peru, Taiwan, and the Philippines.

Gem silica is always associated with copper deposits. It is a secondary mineral that forms as cavity linings and fracture fillings in the rocks above and adjacent to copper deposits. Commonly associated minerals include quartz, chalcedony, chrysocolla, and malachite. Healing Properties:  Supports and enhances Self expression and eloquence, thought clarity, peace, joy and self esteem.
