The month of August brings the soft, green glow of the Prasiolite Gemstone. This precious gemstone is a member of the crystal quartz family, and is known to be a strong amplifier of energy. Allowing light to pass through it, Prasiolite is a semi-transparent stone when compared to darker green stones such as emerald. Prasiolite is said to inspire creativity, attracting success, prosperity and abundance. Also known as the green Amethyst, the August birthstone was named after the greek words ‘prason’, meaning leek, and ‘lithos’, which means stone.
The meaning behind the August birthstone fosters compassion, self-acceptance and self-honour to ignite love and compassion within your heart. The healing properties of this gemstone are also powerful for clearing negative energy from your mind, body and spirit.
Prasiolite has a hardness of 7 on the MOHS scale, meaning it is a durable stone to wear daily. It rarely occurs in nature. When it does, it is typically found in volcanic and igneous rocks, accompanied by amethyst. This gemstone has long been valued in the world of physical healing. Prasiolite is a gorgeous stone to add to your collection for a number of reasons beyond its beauty.
