Chrysoprase, Chrysophrase or Chrysoprasus is a gemstone variety of chalcedony (a cryptocrystalline form of silica) that contains small quantities of nickel.
Its color is normally apple-green, but varies to deep green.
The darker varieties of chrysoprase are also referred to as prase.
Chrysoprase is cryptocrystalline, which means that it is composed of crystals so fine that they cannot be seen as distinct particles under normal magnification.
In the Australian deposits, Chrysoprase occurs as veins and nodules with brown goethite and other iron oxides in the magnesite-rich saprolite below an iron and silica cap.
This cabochon has been cut and polished in our workshop from raw material.
Size : 35.11x15.51x5.76mm
*Important: Please inspect the photos carefully. Please be aware that due to the material structure of this particular cabochon it has several cavities/ pits / holes both on the front and the back.
-In addition to the general properties of chalcedony, chrysoprase is profoundly mood-lifting, cheering, supportive, and healing for the spirit, so makes an excellent ally in times of depression or sadness, and when coping with the darker, more challenging periods of life.
-It can help us to let go of anger, and focus on the positive, rather than being overwhelmed by the negative, reminding us of what we have to be grateful for – definitely a ‘glass half full’ sort of crystal.
-Recommended for acceptance and self-acceptance, as well as for healing the physical and emotional heart.
-It is also highly detoxifying, and can be used to balance and support the immune system. -Gienger suggests it for elimination of toxins and heavy metals.
-Traditionally, it was used to treat gout and epilepsy, and improve eyesight.
-Chrysoprase is strongly connected with Gaia and the natural world – one friend describes holding it as “getting a hug from Mother Nature”.
-Nature spirits are attracted to it, making it very useful when working with nature energy or the Fairy realm.
