Chrysoprase is one of the rarest and most valuable members of the chalcedony group. It contains silica which is an ingredient found in mineral makeup. It was first discovered in Greece in 400 B.C. and was used as a gemstone for its distinct apple green color. All colors have their own special meanings. During the 14th century, mining of this healing stone started in Poland. From then on, the discovery of the mineral has spread to Australia, Brazil, South Africa, Madagascar and Russia.
Chrysoprase has a trigonal crystal system and obtains its green color from its nickel deposits. Other healing stones and mineral element meanings can be found on the crystal meaning page. It is created through a secondary process of the oxidation of salicylic acid solutions and nickel deposits. During the initial process, opal, a mineral that looks almost identical to Chrysoprase, is formed. The nickel that is dissolved out of the surrounding rocks by the solution gives the mineral its dark green color and water deposits in the crystal lattice. Once the water is lost from the lattice, the real sone is formed and the characteristic green color turns pale.
