Chrome chalcedony is similar in appearance to the better known chrysoprase, but differs in that whilst chrome chalcedony is colored by chromium (as chromium(III) oxide), chrysoprase is colored by nickel. The two can be distinguished with a Chelsea color filter, as chrome chalcedony will appear red, whilst chrysoprase will appear green. Chrome chalcedony (unlike chrysoprase) may also contain tiny black specks of chromite.
Chrome chalcedony is (together with agate, carnelian, chrysoprase, heliotrope, onyx and others) a variety of chalcedony. This is a cryptocrystalline form of silica, consisting of fine intergrowths of the minerals quartz and moganite.
Chrome chalcedony is a green variety of the mineral chalcedony, colored by small quantities of chromium. It is most commonly found in Zimbabwe, where it is known as Mtorolite, Mtorodite, or Matorolite.
The color of Chrysoprase can be lighter to more intense apple-green, though deeper colors are more desirable. Once the color reaches a dark threshold, the gemstone is no longer identified as Chrysoprase, but rather as a variety of Chalcedony known as Prase. Lighter-colored Chrysoprase is a much more popular gemstone material over dark green Prase.The transparency of Chrysoprase ranges from translucent to nearly opaque. A universal color consistency increases the desirability and value of this gemstone. The color of Chrysoprase may occasionally fade in prolonged light exposure, so care should be taken to keep these gemstones away from repeated exposure to strong lighting or sunlight. Chrysoprase is very similar to Chrome Chalcedony, which is a green variety of Chalcedony colored green by chromium impurities. Chrysoprase is usually a lighter shade of green compared to Chrome Chalcedony.

Where Is It From ... Chrysoprase Meaning
The meaning of Chrysoprase comes from two words, chrys being the Greek for 'gold or yellow' and prase from the Greek for 'leek', referring to the green coloring of it. The colors of the natural stone varies, depending on how much nickel there is them. In the past the gold or yellowish green colored stone may have been more common, but these days the apple green Chrysoprase is the most common variety. This stone is a type of green chalcedony, and deposits of this stone have been found in Russia, Brazil, Madagascar, Tanzania, South Africa, Poland, Australia and the USA. Pieces of this stone are often very beautiful as the nickel creates lovely patterns in the stone. They may be quite different to each other, and may be bright green through to a pale yellowish green, with nickel inclusions through them.
