A tiny pendant of lovely chrysocolla for your pleasure! I wrote the "Chrysocolla Mermaid" in my notes as I was making this piece, perhaps you will understand when you wear it.

Curiously, of the four essays on Chrysocolla in Within the Stone, the one by John Horgan speaks of Freeman Dyson,"Scanning our solar system for habitable real estate, his gaze snags on Europa... Beneath the azure ice encasing Europa, Dyson conjectures, a liquid ocean moves... In those deeps, a turquoise-breasted mermaid gliding through aquamarine rooms turns her bioluminescent eyes toward the cracked, chrysocolla sky and wonders, Am I alone?" Perhaps you can see why I reference this book so often! Perhaps you will find yourself gliding with the mermaid on Europa when you wear this piece!
