It is generally “apple green” in color, although it may also show undertones of yellow. These colors depend largely on the nickel content present in the mineral.

Early Greek sailors wore amulets of chrysoprase to prevent drowning.

Ancient historians believe that chrysoprase could improve their eyesight. 

Because of its high alkalinity, chrysoprase was once used for medicinal purposes. 

Ancient cultures believed that a chrysoprase could make one disappear if swallowed. This made the gem a popular one among prisoners & their families.
