This is a large natural untreated Chrysoprase from Maryborough Qld . This field has the best reputation for quality Chrysoprase. I managed to buy this material from a old miner so its over 20 years old. The miner has classed this as A grade.Larger sizes sell for a premium.
Chrysoprase, chrysophrase or chrysoprasus is a gemstone variety of chalcedony (a cryptocrystalline form of silica) that contains small quantities of nickel. Its color is normally apple-green, but varies to deep green. The darker varieties of chrysoprase are also referred to as prase. (However, the term prase is also used to describe chlorite-included quartz, and to a certain extent is a color-descriptor, rather than a rigorously defined mineral variety.)
