From the Artist:
“I like to sell my Chrysoprase beads .... said no one EVER! I have to admit that this statement hits home every-time I end up finishing a piece that includes a lot of Chrysoprase, I always end up re-considering or questioning .... is it really worth it? I have a few pieces I will probably never be able to part with but that is altogether another story.
On the day I started this particular piece I was actually planning to create a large Carnelian necklace .... I ended up only using 5 of the planned pieces and dipping into my Chrysoprase stash. The piece came together unexpectedly and ended in something I could appreciate and wanted to make available for purchase as I hoped that who ever ends up owning it would truly share my joy.
If you are wondering why it is such a “big deal” for me, it’s truthfully one of the hardest gemstones to get a hold of and has become increasingly rare locally and abroad, especially interesting and large cuts, and is considered worldwide to be the rarest of all the stones in the chalcedony quartz varieties.” - Joe
A stone of abundance and prosperity it promotes joy, happiness and truth.
