Modern 9ct White Gold Emerald-Cut Prasiolite And Diamond Ring
Strikingly beautiful modern cocktail ring which is what we like to call a ‘stand alone’ ring as she definitely needs to other accompaniment!
Of substantial manufacture this ring weighs a hefty 8.5 grams and is crafted from icy bright 9ct white gold.
Set with a mesmerising pale green/blue emerald-cut Prasiolite in an octagonal bezel setting and exquisite diamond set trident shaped shoulders to a thick and solid flat shank.
This beauty looks as good as she feels on the finger and with a large but not too large finger coverage she makes quite the statement when worn!
What is Prasiolite?
Prasiolite is a yellow-green to green variety of quartz that is cut into faceted stones for use in jewellery or purchased by gemstone collectors. It is produced by the three processes described below:
Heat-Treated Amethyst: Most Prasiolite is produced by heating natural Amethyst in a laboratory oven to about 500 degrees Celsius. This heating changes the Amethyst's colour from purple to green or yellowish green.
Irradiated Amethyst: A small amount of Prasiolite is produced by irradiating natural Amethyst. This produces Prasiolite with a light green colour. The green colour is often unstable and can fade to colourless if the stone is exposed to temperatures over about 150 degrees Celsius.
Naturally Heated Amethyst: Another small amount of Amethyst is heated by natural
processes. It is found where an Amethyst-bearing rock unit has been heated by younger lava flows or nearby intrusions.
What is Green Amethyst?
"Green Amethyst" is a misnomer (an incorrect name) that some people use for Prasiolite. Amethyst, by definition, is a purple variety of quartz. That makes "green Amethyst" an incorrect name.
