This 16 ct round cabochon of Aquamarine was expertly polished to display its subtle swirls of Aqua blue and glowing luminescence. Chrysoprase is a silicate mineral an the unique color is caused by tiny inclusions of Nickel silicates that refract the light. A combination of Chromium, Nickel and Zinc contribute to the unique powder blue- to bluish green color spectrum. Because Aquaprase is a chalcedony, it is hard, durable and lustrous, ideal for jewelry making. Aquaprase is a newly discovered gemstone variety of chalcedony with vibrant bluish-green color and comes from a non-disclosed location in Africa.
