Gemstone: Prasiolite/Green Quartz/Green Amethyst Intalgio
Prasiolite—also know as green quartz or green amethyst—is a verdant quartz named for its lush hues. This organically refined gemstone varies from mossy opaque hues to translucent green with geometric facets or arboresque inclusions.
MOHS Hardness: 7
Care: Avoid dropping your quartz jewelry onto hard surfaces: quartz is only as strong as its inclusions allow. Do NOT soak intaglios in water as it can seep behind the stone. It has been sealed with epoxy as an added measure, so limited liquid is appropriate, but constant immersion and soaking can eventually lead to water damage. To clean, use a damp cloth or toothbrush and dry quickly. Do not use ultrasonic or steam cleaners.
Healing Properties: Promotes heart-opening, self-love, and connection to the self.
