20 Gorgeous Green Gems
Green Aventurine is described as the "Stone of Opportunity," and is considered luckiest of all crystals. It brings optimism and zest for life, letting the wearer have confidence and accept change.
Alexandrite gets its name from Alexander II, the tsar of Russia. The remarkable feature is its ability to change color. It appears green, bluish-green in day and soft shade of red, purplish-or raspberry red in incandescent light.
Topaz is colorless, getting the color from impurities in it. The colored variants, like green, cost less than a pure, unblemished stone. Colored topaz makes stunning jewelry.
Opal was believed to bring in good luck because it was understood to possess all the virtues of each gemstone whose color was represented in the color spectrum of the opal, including green.
