This is prasiolite in a 4mm round cabochon. This is exceptionally clean material and these stones have superb lustre.
NB: it is actually incorrect to refer to this material as green amethyst; properly it should be called prasiolite, and it is heated and treated quartz. The only reason I am still using the term is that it is so universally recognised in a way that prasiolite is not, but I will be phasing this wording out over time.
Approx carats per stone: 0.27
