 "African Turquoise" (Chrysocolla) Rough Stones  - 1 Pound

This unusual stone looks just like turquoise on the outside, due to weathering. That gives it its common name, "African turquoise."

However, it has a different appearance and hardness in its protected interior. Actually a form of chrysocolla, its interior displays a range of colors, from turquoise, to greenish, to yellowish, to whitish, commonly with black specks and brown webbing. Its hardness is about a 6 on the Mohs Scale, so it is fairly easy to work for lapidary including jewelry and tumbled stones, and it takes a great polish.
