Genuine chrysoprase usually exhibits some variation in color, saturation, or diaphaneity. It also often contains included materials.

You will receive 8 ounces(approximately 20 pieces) chosen at random. The photos are representative of what the mineral looks like. These polished minerals are great for educational use or gifts for kids.
