Chrysoprase is prized for its rarity and opalescent apple-green color. Its name comes from Greek words chryso for golden and prason for leek. It is a lighter-colored form of prase. Chrysoprase occurs as nodules or fillings of clefts in serpentine rocks and in weathered materials of nickel ore deposits. Unlike most other green gemstones, which owe their color to chromium or vanadium, chrysoprase's color is derived from staining by nickel oxide.
Chrysoprase is quite often opaque, but the more translucent the gemstone, the better the quality.
