Chrysoprase is an apple-green translucent form of chalcedony, sometimes found with dendritic inclusions. Its colour is derived from nickel, which is an important mineral that aids the assimilation and balance of iron in the physical body. Being semi-opalised, it may become less translucent over time, resulting in an opaque mineral with lemon/lime colouring. Chrysoprase supports the heart and circulatory systems of the body, and is a great choice for the heart and High Heart chakra and centres. It is also a good crystal to choose when working to heal or balance the emotions, or when we need to come to terms with emotional hurts that may have affected our heart. When we use it in layouts we have also found it to be of use in calming and cooling the Seat of the Soul centre, and thus feel it can aid us in knowing, accepting and assimilating our FULL nature as spiritual and eternal Beings of Light. Chrysoprase also holds a form of liquid Light that can feed and fortify or re-energise the spirit, when we feel disconnected, disillusioned, or dispirited, whether this is in our "everyday" or spiritual life.
