From the Australian Outback! Green Prase is an aesthetically beautiful stone direct from the Pilbara region (near Karratha) of Western Australia. Exactly what is Green Prase? Some say that Pilbara Prase is a chrome-rich Chert. Others call it a metamorphosed rock, occurring when a zone of pre-existing Fuchsite, with the addition of silica-rich solutions, is transformed under extreme heat and pressure. And another? Green Prase is simply a form of darker green Chrysoprase. Not being an expert myself, I'll leave that conclusion to you.
But I DO know that spectacular blue-green striationa float in a vertical dance down this entire polished face! There is a mesmerizing linear effect to these artfully aligned "ribbons", especially with the addition of beautiful Quartz verticals off to one side. The totally natural backside is a striking shade of green, and the base has been cut flat for easy self-display. Put it all together and voila'! A stunning display specimen to vividly color your rock world!
