It said Lemon Chrysoprase opens up the hidden artistic talent who’s shy or didn’t know that has it. This fine-grained yellow crystal offers more than just jewelry. A rare hard and dense gemstone, with bright color, that takes an excellent shine when polished. Cut to a designed shape, quite a large size pendant, set with sterling silver 21 gauge triple lined round and half-round jewelry wire wrapping, a modern style method, shows the entire size of the crystal, yet hold it firm and safe in place. Hangs on a silver plated 20″ x 1.5 mm snake chain necklace. Longer 24″, or shorter 18″ necklace is also available.
stone size: 34.8 x 22.2 x 8.3 mm 53.15 ct. overall pendant height, 47.3 mm
Lemon Chrysoprase is not a stone that could be found by the river or hillsides like agates and Jaspers. Only a few places on earth where magnesium oxide mixes with nickel-rich zones, this gemstone evolve over millions of years. There’s confusion, however, about the name of this stone, because the highly valued green Chrysoprase is a different stone in many ways. Only because Chrysoprase is often found along with green magnesite, the lemon stone is a kind of mix of that, and someone someday just gives this inappropriate name to this gem.
That doesn’t mean that this stone has less value, it’s a very popular stone, especially for artists and designers. For those who create things, Lemon Chrysoprase increases motivation, and for those who are lacking inspiration evokes creativity.
This gemstone makes an excellent gift idea for those who have a hidden talent but are too shy or have no confidence to show it.
The raw stone, from an old stock collection, that has run out, this pendant is the last piece.
