All in green – green grapes from garden – very sour; and green chrysoprase pieces, a semi – precious stone from Lower Silesian region of Poland. I’ve collected it with my father and daughter in the ancient mine in Silesia.
Chrysoprase is a green version of chalcedony, its colour being very brilliant and shiny, sometimes transparent. It similes a stained glass. Green clouds or smeares of green are hidden in it’s surface. Chemically it is cryptocrystalline silica, it’s unique colour derives from weathered nickel. It is one of the hardest minerals.
This small white element to the far left is my daughter’s eraser, which just fitted 🙂
