The darker varieties of chrysoprase are also referred to as prase. However, the term prase is also used to describe chlorite. Included quartz, and to a certain extent is a color-descriptor, rather than a rigorously defined mineral variety. Chrysoprase is cryptocrystalline, which means that it is composed of crystals so fine that they cannot be seen as distinct particles under normal magnification. This sets it apart from rock crystal, amethyst. And the other varieties of crystalline quartz The word chrysoprase comes from the Greek. Chrysos meaning’gold’ and prasinon , meaning’green’. Which owes its green color to the presence of chromium. The color of chrysoprase is due to trace amounts of nickel. Compounds in form of very small inclusions. The nickel reportedly occurs as different silicates, like kerolite or pimelite (not NiO mineral, bunsenite, as was reported before). Chrysoprase results from the deep weathering or lateritization. In the Australian deposits, chrysoprase occurs as veins and nodules with brown goethite. And other iron oxides. Below an iron and silica cap. The best known sources of chrysoprase are Queensland.
