If you are not familiar with chrysoprase, here is some information about the stone. Chrysoprase normally occurs as an apple green colored variety of chalcedony, commonly known as quartz. The chysoprase in this ring came from Australia, but chrysoprase can also be found in Brazil, the Ural Mountains, and the U.S. It is often mistaken for Imperial jadeite because of its similar green color. Chrysoprase is a 7 hardness on the Moh's scale, so it makes a good durable stone choice for rings.
