I am obsessed with chrysoprase! These fabulous chrysoprase slices are so unique! The color, the cut, everything! I created unique pinned settings to show off every part of the stone. Measure 1 5/8". Handmade shepherd hook earwires. Sterling silver, which has been oxidized and hand polished for a an antique finish.
About Chrysoprase: The name chrysoprase has been derived from a Greek word "chrysos prason," which literally means ‘gold leek’. Chrysoprase has been called a "Victory Stone”, after stories of Alexander the Great carriying the stone in his belt during his 11 year winning streak. In the 18th century, as said, thieves used to become invisible by keeping the stone in their mouth. Chrysoprase is rumored to help one tap into inner courage and provides the wisdom to use it wisely, especially when one is acting on one's convictions.
