Note: Prasiolite, or green amethyst, is a green variety of quartz. Although it occurs naturally, most prasiolite on the market has been made by heating amethyst crystals from certain localities in Brazil. As only a few locations produce rough material suitable for the creation of prasiolite, its price is typically higher than that of citrine, or yellow quartz, which is also often created through the heat treatment of amethyst .
