Description

An interesting specimen of quartz var. prasolite, polished on one side. Prasiolite is an extremely rare green variety of quartz. Its colour comes from changes in the crystallographic structure, not from inclusions like most of the green quartz.   

The colour is idiochromatic in nature, resulting from the presence of Fe2+ ions substituting for Si in the crystal structure.
