China Chrysoprase Beads
Our China Chrysoprase beads are a cheery apple green color with inclusions of black. The name Chrysoprase is derived from the Greek words “chrysos” and “prase”, meaning “green leek”.
Chrysoprase is the rarest and most valuable variety of Chalcedony. The translucent, apple green color of our China chrysoprase is derived from the presence of small quantities of nickel.
