Gorgeous genuine and natural Chrysoprase beads from Australia. These semiprecious gems are a turquoise green hue with splashes of lime green. They have brown inclusions and the contrast is striking. Chrysoprase is colored by traces of nickel and is in fact one of the few gemstones colored by nickel. These rondelles are faceted to perfection.
Chrysoprase is considered to be the rarest and most valuable stone in the chalcedony quartz group. Chrysoprase is cryptocrystalline, which means that it is composed of crystals so fine that they cannot be seen as distinct particles under normal magnification. It has metaphysical properties for healing as well as being a stone to attract new love and abundance and prosperity. Chrysoprase facilitates deep meditation and relaxation. Use tumbled Chrysoprase to facilitate acceptance of oneself and of others. Working with the Heart Chakra, it is known for bringing hope into dire situations, and is excellent for breaking negative cycles.
