Chrysoprase has been hailed for thousands of years as a beautiful gem material. The ancient Greeks and Romans sought it out for its decorative uses. This pendant contains a large oval chrysoprase cabochon with a golden bezel as a frame. While often cofused with jade, which has a similar color, chrysoprase is very fine-grained chalcedony in the quartz family. The necklace has several textured tublar accents pieces.
