Citron Chrysoprase Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Citron Chrysoprase

Know where your crystals come from

This Citron Chrysoprase is from a small mine in Western Australia. It is a pit mine with a low environmental impact and is safe for miners.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Chrysoprase is an apple-green variety of Chalcedony.  It has been found in locations as varied as Poland to Kazakhstan, but much of what is available in the market today is from Australia.  It is often exported to Hong Kong where it is polished into trinkets and then sold as cheap green “Jade.”  Chrysoprase’s powers have been celebrated for thousands of years.  According to legend, Alexander the Great wore a belt decorated with Chrysoprase that turned him invisible and made him practically invincible in battle.  Today, Chrysoprase is […]
