Chrysoprase is a variety of chalcedony that contains small quantities of nickel, which causes its striking green color. This gemstone forms through a process of silicification in which silica-rich solutions percolate through porous rocks such as basalts or serpentinites. Over time, as the silica precipitates from these solutions, it crystallizes in the presence of nickel compounds, which act as a natural coloring agent. As a result of this specific formation process, chrysoprase deposits are somewhat rare and have been discovered in locations such as Australia, Brazil, and Kazakhstan, each offering stones with unique hues and qualities reflective of their local geochemical conditions. Enchanted Crystal sourced your chrysoprase selection directly from the Brazilian state of Goiás, located in the central part of the country.
In metaphysical circles, chrysoprase is cherished as a stone of the heart. It is believed to bring with it the vibrancy of life and the energy of growth and renewal, akin to the fresh green of springtime. The stone is said to encourage joy and optimism, helping to release negative emotions and fostering a sense of forgiveness and compassion. Advocates of its properties sometimes also turn to chrysoprase for its association with love and abundance, suggesting it has the power to attract new love, prosperity, and opportunities. Chrysoprase holds a special place in the realm of those seeking a deeper connection with their emotional center and the nurturing aspects of the natural world.
