Prasiolite / Green Amethyst
While prasiolite is most often referred to as “green Amethyst,” in reality it is natural green quartz. Its name comes from the Greek word, “prason,” meaning “leek,” because of its distinct color. Since the mid 20th century, almost all natural Prasiolite has come from a small mine in Brazil, although small pockets are found in Poland. Contemporary stone lore rumors Prasiolite aids in mind to body healing and balance and increases inner focus and healing.
