CHRYSOPRASE AUSSIE SLAB

A rustic Chrysoprase Aussie Slab rough rock.  This is a large piece with varying shades of green across it.  A thoughtful carver could make some very beautiful items out of this stone.  The back of the stone still has a rough skin on it.  One pic shows the stone with a strong light against it but due to the other side having a thick covering it is hard to get a good shot of the true potential colour of the stone once polished.

Location:
Marlborough, Queensland, Australia.

Dimensions:
20.5cm x 18.3cm x 2.6cm, 922g.

Chrysoprase.

Chrysoprase, chrysophrase or chrysoprasus is a gemstone variety of chalcedony (a cryptocrystalline form of silica) that contains small quantities of nickel. Its color is normally apple-green, but varies to deep green. The darker varieties of chrysoprase are also referred to as prase.

This material was fossicked many years ago, the location is now closed for fossicking.
