Prasiolite Pendants: Glimmering Green That's Greek for Leek and Lovely around Your Neck

Prasiolite pendants – yeah, sure, I get it. Love it. Sounds awesome. Well, here's where things get just a little more complicated. And not like a chronograph watch or a graphing calculator or a lefse recipe. More like figuring out what something really means. So here we go.

Prasiolite is technically a rare and naturally occurring type of transparent green quartz; however, most prasiolites you'll find in the jewelry market today are actually heat treated green amethysts. That's why you see the little green amethyst name in parentheses next to prasiolite here on our site. Just to be clear.

But whatever their origin might be, the stones end up a lovely light yellow-green to deep green hue and sometimes look similar to peridots or tourmalines. And apparently some human at some point thought they also looked a lot like vegetables because the name comes from the Greek word for leek. And that's not a problem because leeks are delicious.

So now that you know the story behind the prasiolites (or likely heat-treated green amethysts) you'll find on our site, why not scroll up and take a look at our selection of prasiolite pendants. It'll be a nice drop of gorgeous green you can keep close to your heart. And here's something else, too – lefse, as mentioned above, is made of potatoes and leeks go great with potatoes. In soup and stew and that kind of thing. So just keep that it mind.
