|Chrysoprase has been used in jewelry and ornamental objects since ancient times. Legend has it this green, opalescent gemstone was a favorite of Alexander the Great. The rarest form of chalcedony (a variety of quartz), chrysophrase derives its color from its nickel content. It’s a cryptocrystalline stone, with crystals so fine they can’t be seen as distinct particles. |
Offering gentle, soothing qualities, chrysoprase is believed to promote happiness and assist healing, especially when combined with silver. It is also said to bring business success and prosperity.
