Chrysoprase Gemstone Pendant
Chrysoprase ladies pendant featuring an impressive emerald green coloured gemstone. Mounted in a hand crafted sterling silver setting, this stone which is a variety of the mineral quartz has a vitreous lustre which is a reference to the way that it interacts with light.
Frederick II the Great of Prussia loved chrysoprase and snuffboxes and a piece from his collection that was crafted around 1765 is currently housed in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. The exquisite gold mounted snuffbox was carved from a single piece of chrysoprase and features gemstones and diamonds.
This pretty chrysoprase pendant is comfortably light weight and exhibits exceptional colour. It's one of only a few chrysoprase pendants that we currently have available in our collection.
