Chrysoprase — sometimes referred to as chrysophrase or chrysoprasus — is a gemstone variety of chalcedony that gets its apple green color from small quantities of nickel.
It’s that color that earned this stone its name, as "chrysoprase" comes from the Greek words for "golden apple" or "golden leek."
The best known sources of chrysoprase are Indonesia, Queensland, Western Australia, Haneti Tanzania, Germany, Poland, Russia, Arizona, California, and Brazil.
Please note: Prolonged exposure to sunlight can cause Chrysoprase to fade.
All tumbled stones are priced and sold individually, unless otherwise noted.
Due to the unique qualities in each stone, sizes can vary from 0.75 inches to 1.75 inches per stone.
