Notes - Marlborough green chalcedony / chrysoprase was wiped out by the high-end jewelry industry and collectors especially Van Cleef & Arpels in the 1970's due to it being a dead ringer for the highest-end jadeite (Imperial to Apple Green) hardness is excellent and pieces of this vintage jewelry even with conservative amounts of the chalcedony and no diamonds, set in platinum or gold sell for prices starting at about 3500.00 USD and exceeding 100,000.00 USD.
