arbonate group. It is a mineral of secondary origin commonly associated with other secondary copper minerals, like Malachite.
Chrysocolla is an alloy composed of 4 parts copper, 2 parts asem (a kind of tin-copper alloy) and 1 part gold and in the Orthorhombic crystal system.
The name Chrysocolla comes from the ancient Greek χρυσός (chrysos) and κολλα (kolla), "gold" and "glue," in allusion to the name of the material used to solder gold and was first used by Theophrastus in 315 BC.
Malachite is an opaque, green-banded mineral in the Monoclinic crystal system.
