Where Is Chrysoprase From?

One thing is for sure: “chrysoprase” comes from a combination of two Greek words. However, there tends to be a bit of debate over exactly which two Greek words. Some say that this gemstone's name comes from combining the words chrysos – meaning gold – and prasinon – meaning green. Others say that its name is a mixture of chrysos and prason – meaning leek. Both translations are highly applicable, since chrysoprase contains varying degrees of golden patterns and can come in a wide range of greens, and the lush tops of leeks display a variety of greens from light to dark. Its luxurious greens make it highly a sought after stone, yet people still tended to confuse it with emeralds.

Chrysoprase can be found in Australia, Germany, Poland, Russia, Brazil, and throughout the United States, but mostly in Arizona and California. It isn't an uncommon gem, but it is definitely precious!

What Makes Chrysoprase Special?

Chrysoprase is a kind of chalcedony, a form of silica. It is commonly described as being apple green. The chalcedony obtains its vibrant green hues from nickel oxide. However, this gem's green can be anywhere from a pale and almost lemon yellow to a deep green, which is even darker than the well-known apple shade. Because the chrysoprase gemstone itself is largely composed of silica, it can range from transparent to opaque.

Enter the matrix: another feature that makes chrysoprase such a gorgeous gem. Any copper or brown patterns found within our chrysoprase beads are naturally occurring. This gemstone forms within the crevices of caves and even inside of other rocks, and other material will sometimes blend in with the solidifying silica. Our beads are available with or without matix markings.
