About the stone
Chrysoprase is an apple green coloured variety and the rarest of the Chalcedony group. While most green stones owe their colour to chromium or vanadium, chrysoprase get its colour from its nickel content. It is found in Australia, Brazil, the Ural Mountains and the US.
Chrysoprase was used by the Greeks, Romans and the Egyptians in jewellery and other ornamental objects. It used to be referred to as ‘the stone of Venus’. It was the most favourite stone of Alexander the Great, he wore a bridle embedded with a giant chrysoprase stone for his battles and he considered it to be his lucky talisman. In ancient times it was considered a protection stone on sea voyages.
Chrysoprase is thought to draw out talent and promote creativity. It is believed to encourage fidelity in both business and personal relationships. It is thought of as a calming stone and stimulates speech and mental dexterity. Chrysoprase is excellent for relaxation and peaceful sleep preventing nightmares.
