Prasiolite is a light to dark green crystal that ranges from translucent to opaque. It has mint and olive-green hues, and a glassy luster. In its natural form, prasiolite is often marked with natural etchings throughout. When tumbled, some pieces may have white banding and swirls, especially when treated. Prasiolite is sometimes called “Green Amethyst” or “Greened Amethyst”, and it is important to note that almost all of the Green Amethyst crystals that you see on the market have had their color lab enhanced.
Prasiolite (also called Vermarine) helps to energetically link the physical aspects of the Human self with the spiritual aspects of Higher Self. Prasiolite brings the higher vibration energy of Divine though the heart and into the physical.
Prasiolite helps to ease discomfort for those who find it difficult to express emotion. It is a reminder that all are part and parcel of the Divine, unconditional loving Source. Those who have issues of self-worth or lack self-confidence will find working with Prasiolite helps to foster a deep appreciation and acceptance of self.
Prasiolite is an excellent stone to use when connecting the higher energy of Source to the grounding energy of Earth. This allows a powerful healing energy to flow from the heart into the Earth, removing any discordant, negative energy and filling the space with the capacity for renewed growth. Healers who work with stones also find that Prasiolite will work in a similar manner. Higher, healing energies flow from Source, into the heart, and through the hands, allowing the removal of these energies.
