Often nicknamed "green amethyst", Prasiolite is the pale green member of the quartz family (amethyst being the purple variety of quartz) and is usually heat treated to bring out its green colour. Due to this, prasiolite benefits from a bit more care than other quartz gems; it loves being worn only occasionally rather than every day, don't expose it to light for long periods of time, keep your gemstone away from heat, and always store prasiolite in a dark box - these tips will help your prasiolite gemstone stay sparkling and green for many years to come.
