August Birthstone - Prasiolite
AUGUST 25, 2016 by GARY AT CHUPI
This month's birthstone is the soft green glow of prasiolite. The word prasiolite is derived from two Greek words, 'prason', which means "leek" and 'lithos' which translates as "stone. It is often also known as 'green amethyst'. Allowing light to pass through it, prasiolite is a semi-transparent stone when compared to darker green stones such as emerald. Our wide range of birthstone initial necklaces are available now from chupi.com
