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.
Healing Properties: Growth, compassion, connection with nature, and forgiveness.

the story of ruthie b.
An homage to Hannah's childhood and the nostalgia of her fishing home, this collection comprises gritty nautical-inspired pieces. The collection is named after Hannah's father's fishing vessel, the Ruthie B, which was named after Hannah's mother. Ruthie B. celebrates the mystery and natural peculiarity of the ocean that painted the artist’s childhood. In their weathered island home, Hannah and her six siblings learned how to entertain themselves amidst the chaos that comes with such a large family. The dingy fishing paraphernalia that littered their backyard was a playground of inspiration: raw snapshots of beauty against the clean backdrop of their hometown of Nantucket. These familiar moments inspired her to create beauty of her own. Shop the full Ruthie B. Collection.
