The crisp, fresh mornings are creeping back in and with that brings the soft green glow of prasiolite, the birthstone for the month of August.

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. Prasiolite inspires creativity, attracting success, prosperity and abundance.
