Chrysoprase Jewelry
Chrysoprase is a rare member of the quartz family and many gemstone collectors consider it to be a prized piece in their collections. Chrysoprase's most sought after attribute is its pleasing green shade, ranging from rich apple green to deeper shades. The traces of nickel found in the stone are what give it its color. Chrysoprase is also sometimes referred to as “Australian Jade”.

For healing powers, chrysoprase is believed to facilitate self-expression and courage as well as improving relationships, while holding a piece of chrysoprase is said to speed the healing of any wound.

Chrysoprase is usually cut in cabochon style and you can find very attractive authentic chrysoprase cabochon pieces of jewelry at JeGem. The good polish makes them glow, while their fine handcrafted setting makes them even more charming and desirable!
