Green Amethyst aka Prasiolite
In many parts of the world, Green Amethyst is considered a sacred stone. In its rare, natural form, its beautiful color forms usually because of the lower levels of chromium in the quartz and the trace amounts of iron and copper. The layers of natural green quartz are made entirely from what science calls "Imperial Jasper" found in the Imperial Valley, thus its namesake. The Imperial Valley is located in Southern California and extends into Mexico.
Because of the rarity of natural Green Amethyst, the more available form is of heat treated Purple Amethyst. Green Amethyst, whether natural or heat-treated, serves as a superb meditation stone that bridges the higher chakras and aligns the body, mind, and spirit into an integrated whole. Green Amethyst activates the Heart Chakra, putting the heart in the lead position of directing your thoughts and actions. Prasiolite is connected to the Archangel of Healing, Raphael.
