Meaning "golden bloom," the Greeks so named chrysoprase because of the golden colors that emanate from the stone. With such beautiful translucent shades of green to apple green, chrysoprase was the most valuable and desired stone of the Middle Ages. As the most sought after variety of the chalcedony stones, chrysoprase is prized for its rarity and color.

Dubbed "a stone of the heart," chrysoprase is believed to help those with high blood pressure and heart ailments. By calming the heart and the mind, it gives positive energy to those with glandular disorders. Chrysoprase also symbolizes clarity of thought and is believed to lead people in their intellectual achievements.

Astrologically, chrysoprase is associated with Cancer.
