Comment: This and another pair of chrysopase arrived hidden in a big mixed parcel of emeralds. Color-wise these gems compete with most emeralds and thus went undetected. Only a closer study of their crystal revealed a very different character. Then, they remind of jade or nephrite though they in fact belong to a sub-variety of chalcedony, sometimes simply called 'prase'. Durable for jewelry, with an history reaching back to the dawn of humanity with many references in ancient literature and science, prase is an honorable gem variety, not a fake or make believe but a perfectly respectable alternative to jade, cabochon emerald or even softly colored paraiba. Note that a half carat gives a full ring-sized gem, 8x4mm of intense yet silky blueish green. The camera looses too much color in the hand-shot while the main image needs some dialing down. The truth, as always, sits in-between: an always visible strong green with a blue tint from a silky crystal. Normally cut in cabochons, these facetted gems are highly visible for ring or pendant.
