Chrysoprase, also known as Australian Jade, is a green variety of Chalcedony that contains minor traces of Nickel. It’s structure is cryptocrystalline, which basically means Chrysoprase is made up of a large amount of tiny crystals too small for the human eye to even see! This crystal was first found in 1844 by J.D. Dana. He named it for the Greek words meaning “gold” and “green”. In ancient times, Chrysoprase was often referred to as “the Stone of Venus”. It was commonly worn as jewellery or used as a carving and sculpting material due to its raw beauty. A common tale is that Chrysoprase was even Alexander the Great’s favourite gemstone!
Chrysoprase can be found all around the world and in countries such as Madagascar, Tanzania, India, Russia, Brazil, USA, Poland, and Australia. The highest quality stones currently on the market are coming out of mines in Queensland Australia (hence the “Australian Jade” nickname!). The largest amount of Chrysoprase ever found was located at a mine in Szklary, Poland. The source quickly became completed and by the 14th century the world was on the hunt for Chrysoprase once more.
