The landscape throughout Arizona is dotted with arroyos- dry washes that suddenly come to life after a rainstorm, filling with rivers of fast rushing water.
These bi-color Crysoprase stones immediately brought those arroyos to mind, with their rivers of bright turquoise running through the center of the rich brown stones. The graduated pear briolettes are are separated by Czech glass beads and apatite rondelle nuggets. The Czech glass beads continue along the neck for comfort, ending in a handmade copper colored aluminum toggle clasp.
The necklace itself measures approximately 20 inches, with a 2 inch drop on the largest briolette. The aluminum clasp measures in at 1 1/2 inches.
Chrysoprase is an extremely useful stone for improving emotional health. It promotes forgiveness, empathy, self-growth, self-love, and general joie de vivre. Chrysoprase is one of the best stones you can use as a heart chakra stone in order to clear and promote the energy of the heart chakra.
