Chrysoprase Poor Mans Jade in ROCKS, MINERALS and FOSSILS Posted September 25, 2014 Hey Ben I have aHi Kelly, Those are nice pieces. I have found chrysoprase here in Arizona, when hunting meteorites.I have had them confirmed by a geologist (The Arizona mineral society that sponsors the show)at an annual gem and mineral show in Mesa. I need to get a saw to reall show them off. Ben Hey Ben I have an 18" saw if you ever want to bring anything over to cut. I would love to see some local chrysoprase. I've only heard of one location in Arizona but never went to check it out.
