These stones are reminiscent of the color of granny smith apples and have a wonderful translucence. The rough is material I purchased directly from the Australian miners a few years ago at their Quartzsite selling space. The oval, which is 18 x 20 mm and will fit into a cinch mount, has an interesting inclusion of matrix that in no way impacts the beauty or finish of the stone. The baroque piece is 20 x 32 mm. It is difficult to find a piece of rough clean and large enough to yield this caliber of large stones. This is why I have to charge so much for these stones. I say, if you find a better deal on genuine chrysoprase cabs, go for it. I wouldn't blame you.
For you metaphysical fans, here is what I found at healingcrystals.com: "A stone of grace and compassion, Chrysoprase facilitates deep meditation and relaxation. Use Chrysoprase to encourage acceptance of oneself and of others, by banishing feelings of superiority or inferiority from within. Chrysoprase can also be used as a loving and supportive stone during experiences of deep loss."
