Marquise Shaped Chrysoprase Pendant
A slightly chunkier marquise shaped chrysoprase pendant crafted in a fine sterling silver setting. The rich emerald green colour of this polished cabochon is really quite impressive.
Chrysoprase is a distinctive green variety of quartz whose history can be traced back as far as 23 AD. Although well known for its apple green colour it can also be found in several other distinctive shades of green.
A cryptocrystalline mineral meaning its crystals are too small to be seen with the naked eye, its green colour is caused by traces of nickel. Chrysoprase is used primarily as a lapidary material and the finest grade gemstones are highly sought after.
This colourful sterling silver and gemstone pendant comes in a protective gift pouch and is sure to be a piece that you'll love to wear.
Available with a 16" 18" or 20" Italian made sterling silver snake chain.
