One of the most coveted varieties of chalcedony quartz, chrysoprase is prized for its apple green color and rarity. Chrysoprase's name comes from the Greek words chrysos, meaning gold and prason, meaning leek, due to its color similarities with the vegetable.
 
Chrysoprase is a rare, highly valued, nickel-bearing variety of chalcedony. Colour varies from apple green to deep green, and the highest quality material is translucent. Chrysoprase is commonly known by gemologists as “Australian jade” and is often used in jewellery as a substitute for jade due to its harder wearing characteristics. Chrysoprase is highly valued in east Asia notably China.

History

The pharaohs of ancient Egypt wore jewelry set with chrysoprase, and the stone has long been connected to royalty. In the Middle Ages people believed that if you put a piece of chrysoprase in your mouth, you would become invisible. In the late 19th century, chrysoprase was a favourite gemstone of the master jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé, famous the world over for his Fabergé eggs.
