Australian Green Chrysoprase Designer Pendant


I don't come across much good quality chrysoprase, but this stunning cab has everything! Great color, nice cut, attractive price. It's 7mm thick and nearly 50mm long with a wonderful combination of rich green with brown inclusions. I've wrapped it with six lengths of sterling wire and given it a simple double swirled topper.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The pendant measures 2 3/8" from top of bail and is 3/4" wide.

Note: Chrysoprase is the most valued variety of chalcedony. The word chrysoprase comes from the Greek chrysos meaning 'gold' and prason, meaning 'leek' and it was used by both Greeks and Romans as a decorative stone. Its green color is due to trace amounts of nickel in the structure. Originally mined in Poland and Czechoslovakia, since 1965 the best quality chrysoprase comes from Queensland, Australia but other sources include Brazil, California, the Urals, and Austria.

Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say that chrysoprase brings peace to the heart and well-being to one's emotional, mental and physical states. It is said to aid in releasing stress, healing 'heartbreak', calming anger and soothing fear.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
