Chrysoprase is a rare form of chalcedony and is coloured a beautiful green by small amounts of nickel inclusions.
Chalcedony is a cryptocrystalline form of silica. Cryptocrystalline means the crystals are so fine and small that they are hardly visible even under magnification.
Chrysoprase is found in veins of nickel-containing serpentine rocks.
Often the colour can be a pale apple-green, so to find one with such vibrant colours as this is a rare treasure indeed.
Love! This chrysoprase specimen was polished by expert craftsmen in Madagascar. Perfect for a Valentine or birthday gift to someone who loves minerals and crystals, or for yourself to show yourself some love! Everyone could stand to give themself some more love.
This is a large handheld size piece.
Note: colour can fade if subjected to prolonged sunlight or heat exposure. I've read that soaking it in wet cotton or otherwise a damp setting can restore the colour, but I have yet to try this out.
