This is NOT green amethyst! There is NO such thing as green amethyst! Amethyst is a variety of quartz that is purple in color. If a stone is not purple, it can not be amethyst. I repeat- there is no such thing as green amethyst.
When quartz is green, it is called prasiolite. This is a wonderful example of the stone with a lively mint green color and very good brilliance. It is also quite clean with a VS clarity grade. The stone weighs 6.27 carats and the dimensions are 10.68 x 10.21 x 7.55mm deep.
As you can see by the pictures it is a very attractive stone that is square shaped with a step cut. This makes for a sophisticated look that is ideal either for the gemstone collector or for jewelry. Because prasiolite is a "7" on the Mohs hardness scale, it is suitable for any type of jewelry.
This stone was mined in Brazil. This stone has been treated with heat and radiation.

. As a professional gemologist, I probably have an answer or can find one for you. And if I don't have an answer to your question I will admit that I have no idea! Gemology is full of riddles and nobody has all the answers.
