Heat Treated

Prasiolite is very rare in nature, although there are deposits in Brazil and in the Thunder Bay region of Ontario, Canada. Most green amethyst is purple amethyst that has been heat treated, causing the purple color to become a light, leek green. Natural green amethyst is found in deposits of purple amethyst, so it is likely that these were once crystals that were heated more than the surrounding crystals, which caused them to change color. Some green amethyst actually becomes dichroic, displaying both a light green and yellow color.

Spiritual Properties

Green amethyst beads are considered very spiritual stones. As with purple amethyst, green amethyst is thought to protect the wearer from intoxication and to provide spiritual support for people trying to quit drinking. Prasiolite also clears negative energy, helps the wearer develop compassion, and promotes self-acceptance and self-forgiveness. It strengthens willpower and the emotions, especially love. Because of their color, green amethyst beads can be used to attract prosperity and bring luck and good fortune.

Plays Well With Others

Green is a very popular color for jewelry, and the lovely pale shades of green amethyst beads make them a perfect choice for mixing with other gemstones to create necklaces, bracelets and earrings. If you are looking for an earthy effect, combine opaque, natural, green amethyst beads with African opal beads, green kyanite or zoisite. For a very striking effect, string green and purple amethyst together with some two-color tourmaline. Green beads also pair well with brown or gold beads, such as tiger’s eye or citrine, as well as coppery freshwater pearls. Black makes a dramatic contrast with green, and green amethyst beads mix well with onyx, agate or obsidian.
