Chrysocolla History Mythology Information: The Word Chrysocolla comes from the Greek word ‘Chrys’ meaning gold and ‘Kolla’ meaning glue. It has this name due to the fact that the Ancient Greeks used to use the stone to solder gold. It was believed that the person possessing a stone would be more creative and feminine. The Native Americans believed that the stone had much healing power and that it could strengthen the body’s resistance and calm a person when stressed.
