Chunky Green Chrysoprase Earrings, Long Boho Green Earrings, Rustic Green Chrysoprase Earrings


Rustic and Raw Green Chrysoprase stones ~~ 




Chrysoprase is said to be the stone of joy, happiness, and healing. However, I would assert that these emerge from our pursuit of the heart of Christ:)

The meaning of Chrysoprase comes from two words, "chrys", Greek for 'gold or yellow' and "prase" fGreek for 'leek', referring to the green coloring of it. 
The colors of the natural stone varies, depending on how much nickel there is them. Today we typically think of Chryosprase as an apple green, although, there are varieties which have stronger yellow tones. The presence of nickel creates beautiful patterns in the stones. 
Chrysoprase comes from the agate family and is a type of chalcedony, a stone which I like very much. 

I wired with antiqued silver pins and hung from antiqued silver 1.5 kidney style wires. Definitely different. Earrings hang a little over 2 inches from these wires; however, choose your favorite wire below.
