CHRYSOPRASE is a sea-green variety of cryptocrystalline quartz which is considered to be a semi-precious gemstone. This gem quality specimen comes from the Old Yerilla Mine in Western Australia, Australia - a locality that has produced some of the finest chrysoprase ever found. The color on this beautiful specimen is especially fine: it's a lovely, 100% natural turquoise green. I acquired this highly representative specimen from an Australian supplier we met at the Tucson Gem Rock and Mineral Show.
Here is a large polished nugget of chrysoprase, colored a highly attractive glowing apple green color.
