More about Prasiolite
Prasiolite beads are some of the most precious in our shop -- we can't get enough of the soft green color and near perfect clarity. Prasiolite is often referred to as green amethyst, green quartz, or vermarine.
Prasiolite is a transparent macrocrystalline quartz in light green color. It is mined in Canada, Poland, and Brazil, but there is little quantity left to mine. For this reason, much of the Prasiolite on the market is actually heat-treated and irradiated amethyst.
