Chrome chalcedony (Mtorolite) is similar in appearance to the better known chrysoprase, but differs in that whilst chrome chalcedony is coloured by chromium, Mtorolite is coloured by nickel and may also contain tiny black specks of chromite.
This is a high grade piece which has gemmy quality and could be faceted into a gemstone by a lapidarist.
