• Bi-colour chrysoprase pendant with necklace


    This elegant necklace's focal point is a pice of bi-colour chrysoprase wrapped with silver plated wire.  This has then been placed on a memory wire necklace enabling it to lie beautifully on the neckline.

    A little bit of history, myth and legend

    Chrysoprase forms part of the chalcedony quartz family and can be highly prized for its minty green quality.  In this pendant you can see flecks of this minty green colour throughout the gemstone.  It is thought that the name chrysoprase originates from the Greek 'choruses' for 'gold' and 'prason' for 'leek'.  This refers to its leek greek colour and golden inclusions.  Chrysoprase unlike most green gemstones derives its colour from Nickel.

    In crystal healing teachings there is a belief that chrysoprase balances the conscious and unconscious mind and to carry very strong energy and crystal power.  In ancient mythology the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians prized chrysoprase for its supposed great powers and soft alluring colour.  The Greeks thought that it would ensure good health and a happy marriage and they thought that if you left the stone outside on a half moon the moon would recharge the stones powers.

    The crystal healing properties of this gemstone are only given as background to it and are not given as confirmed advice.  The lore and mythological background of the gemstone is given for information only and is not the opinion of Toria's Trinkets.
