Facts About Chrysoprase
Our Chrysoprase is mined in Australia, one of the major sources for this gem. With coloring similar to Jade, Chrysoprase is sometimes referred to as “Australian Jade”. This is a misnomer, however, and one should not confuse the beauty of Chrysoprase with the richness of Jade. In addition to Australia, Brazil and areas of Europe are other sources for Chrysoprase.
