Prasiolite (Green Amethyst)
~ Linking, healing heart & mind ~
Prasiolite, also called leek-green quartz, is a relatively rare gemstone which comes into being when certain amethysts from the Montezuma deposit in Brazil are exposed to heat of 932 degrees F. This elicits their green color, as well as the nickname "green amethyst". Its hardness is 7.
Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say that Prasiolite helps to link the physical and spiritual aspects of life, activating the heart as one's center of conscious. It is said to strengthen one's mind, emotions & will, and to attract prosperity.
