Chrysoprase (also Chrysophrase) is a green Chalcedony, a fibrous form of quartz, so a member of the Quartz family. It’s crystal system is hexagonal (trigonal), with its colour is normally apple-green but can vary to a deep green. Due to its comparative scarcity and pleasing green colour It is one of the rarest and most valuable of the Chalcedonies. It’s green colour comes from nickel, and it often occurs as nodules or in crevices in nickel deposit.
Chrysoprase was used as gemstone in ancient Greece as far back as 400 B.C. and was mined in Poland since the 14th century. Current important deposits of Chrysoprase are in Australia, Brazil, Madagascar, South Africa and Russia.
