“Glue for Gold”

Description from ClovisakaLois: This is Chrysocolla. The ancient Greeks named it this because they used it in a welding process on gold.
I used Greek gold pieces...it just seemed appropriate.

    I love chrysocolla, but never stopped to read this gemstone’s history until the other day. LB has good notes on the gemstones…and to think the Greeks only valued this lovely stone for it’s use to weld gold!

    To weld gold… Hmmm… I never heard of that before. It does seem like an unfortunate sacrifice of a lovely stone. Anyway. Love your pick!
