Chrysoprase is known as the stone of Venus. The rarest of the chalcedony family, this gemstone is beloved for its varying viridescence—from bright, green-apple shades to more muted moss—and its unique inclusions.
MOHS Hardness: 6.5 to7
Care: Avoid dropping your chrysoprase jewelry onto hard surfaces and keep away from chemicals: contact with cosmetics, oils, acids, etc. can damage chrysoprase. To clean your chrysoprase jewelry, use warm, soapy water and remove any dirt with a toothbrush or the like gently. Do not use an ultrasonic or steam cleaner. Chrysoprase can fade with too much sunlight.
