What many mistakenly refer to as “green amethyst” is actually a type of quartz crystal known as prasiolite. First found in lower Silesia, Poland in the early 1800s, the prasiolite has grown increasingly popular among jewellery designers and crystal healers alike.

This beautiful variety of green quartz is a lesser known August birthstone, along with peridot, sardonyx and spinel, and is associated with the zodiac signs of Virgo, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces.

Prasiolite is one of the many varieties of the quartz gemstone. Sometimes also spelled “praseolite” and pronounced “PRAYS-ee-oh-light”, this gem actually originates as purple amethyst, and is then processed to transform its colour to a leafy or yellowy green.

This colour conversion may be achieved by treatment with either heat or irradiation. With heat treatment, the purple amethyst is warmed to around 500°C (932°F) to yield a green to yellow-green hue. Irradiation, meanwhile, involves irradiating natural amethyst, resulting in a pale green variety of prasiolite.

Prasiolite rarely occurs naturally, when it is heated by a type of geological metamorphism, where an ancient rock containing amethyst is heated by more recent lava flows or intrusions nearby.

As a type of quartz, prasiolite possesses all of the standard benefits associated with this mineral. The gem is also imbued with its own uniquely valuable attributes in keeping with its aforementioned metaphysical significance. These benefits can be felt in the areas of physical and mental health, financial wellbeing and good fortune, and interpersonal relationships.

Prasiolite is believed to attract fortunate circumstances into the lives of those who possess it, with the specific imperative of fostering personal and fiscal independence. It nurtures clarity of thought and the insight required to identify opportunities for growth where they arise. In the pursuit of these goals, the prasiolite holder will find that they are more focused and determined.

With regard to monetary success, prasiolite assists its possessor in achieving abundance whilst simultaneously enriching the lives of those around them.

Prasiolite is also a great support to seekers of personal and spiritual growth. It engenders greater self-sufficiency, self-love and confidence. Thus, the prasiolite stone enables one to enter into relationships with others from a position of inner strength and authenticity.

The prasiolite stone is highly regarded for its power to eliminate negativity and manifest a more positive, joyful aura in those who possess it. The green quartz crystal mollifies intense emotions to allow cooler heads to prevail. Thus, the gem enables one to live in the moment and so attract warm people and healthy relationships.

Prasiolite is also said to possess powerful curative properties for physical ailments. It is the go-to crystal for healers who seek to cleanse their clients’ bodies of toxins. Additionally, this gemstone may treat ulcers, support the endocrine system, and neutralise stomach acid to aid in the absorption of nutrients. Some practitioners even believe that prasiolite has the power to assist the healing of tumours and growths.

Please note: Due to being a natural hand carved stone, each crystal is unique and may differ slightly in shape, size and colour. They may also contain small flaws including imperfect points, rough edges, inclusions or natural cavities.
