This much loved lapidary material is found close the the Chrome mines, the green colouration is due to the presence of chrome. This specimen has had some trimming done to it but this only adds to the character, if not it should be a welcome addition to any lapidary workshop as it takes a brilliant polish and is tough enough for intricate carving as well.
