Hand-carved apple-green chrysoprase heart suspended on a vintage style 18k gold cable chain

Said to have been the favorite gemstone of General Alexander the Great, Chrysoprase was used by the Greeks, Romans and Egyptians to make jewelry and other ornamental objects because of its beautiful, vivid green color. The King of Prussia Frederick the Great (1740 – 1786) was so obsessed with Chrysoprase that he adorned his Palace with objects and furniture made from this beautiful stone. Throughout history Chrysoprase has occasionally been mistaken for jade or emerald, but we think it’s vibrant apple-green shade stands alone.
