The gemstone alternatively is also known as Green Amethyst, and Green Quartz. It is one of the most striking semi-precious stone and its greenish color makes it a perfect jewelery element. Prasiolite got its name from two Greek words ‘Parson’ and ‘Lithos’, which mean leek and stone respectively. It comes in a green color similar to the leek, but at times, these stones feature a yellow green color as well. Prasiolite is said to evoke positivity and stimulate energy.
