In the days of old, the only source of this rare form of quartz was a region in southwestern Poland known as Lower Silesia. In fact, dating as far back as the Iron Age, Chrysoprase was a common feature in Silesian carving and masonry.
The tradition of incorporating Chrysoprase into decorative art continued in the 18th century with Frederick II, King of Prussia. After he conquered the region, he used the land deposits of green Chrysoprase to decorate the halls of his favorite palace at Potsdam near Berlin.
A cool and calming variety of Chalcedony, this gemstone was a favorite of Alexander the Great, who called on its healing powers during his quest for world domination.
