Treatment : None -- Sold as a specimen, some minor chipping may occur in transit as NO rock hardening treatments will be applied. As always, unforeseen weaknesses exist in chrysocolla and any cutting or other lapidary work will require experience in addition to backing and further stabilization or hardening to produce cabs or other lapidary creations.
