Beautiful Chrysoprase (light green) studs available in Sterling Silver and Gold Filled, measures 4mm round.
The most valuable form of chalcedony and prized for its color, chrysoprase is often mistaken for jade due to its vivid-to-soft green color, which comes from nickel silicate within the stone. Chrysoprase can come in colors that range from pale mint-green to jade-like green, or even an apple-green shade. The stone is composed of crystals of such fineness that they are not discernible as separate particles under normal magnification. According to folklore, the stone carries the "vibration of Divine Truth" and banishes depression and anxiety, replacing them with joy and happiness
