Interesting little Amegreen tumblestones, measuring between 15 and 25MM approximately.
These stones are quite unusual; a combination between Amethyst and Prasiolite, sometimes known as 'Green Amethyst' or 'Green Quartz'.
They make a nice display item in a bowl, or a vase, and are good contrast stones against something darker. As a fairly rare stone, the mineral collectors in the audience might be interested in them, too!
These Amegreen pieces are most likely treated; we simply don't know for sure. This means the stones have been partially heated or irradiated in order to change the colour of a piece partially green. Prasiolite on its own is very rare in nature.

What are tumblestones?
Tumblestones are stones that have been put in spinning barrels with an abrasive compound for weeks or months. This slowly rounds off the rough rock and corners – the stones are then cleaned, and placed with a less abrasive grit. This happens several times until the stones are placed into a barrel with a polishing compound for their final polish.
