A natural druzy and pyramid shaped chrysoprase are prong set in 14k gold fill on a smooth band. The band is flexible and allows you to gently expand and contract the band to fit your wrist.
Band measures 5.5 inches in circumference.
Chrysoprase is gemstone variety of chalcedony, classified as cyrpto-crystalline. The name is derived from Greek: chrysos, meaning 'gold and prasinon, meaning 'green.'
Druzy (druse) is a coating of fine crystals on a rock fracture surface, vein, or within a geode. Druzy is most commonly found in quartz.
Due to the aberrant nature of minerals, each piece of gem/mineral is unique.
Gold fill is made from solid gold which is 'filled' with other alloys. Unlike gold plate, It will not flake, and the surface will not turn your fingers like brass can do. The finish and surface of gold fill has the same properties of solid gold because it is gold. Please care for your gold fill pieces just as you would a gold piece of jewelry. Gently polish by hand with a clean cloth.
