Prasiolite, also known as Vermarine or Green Amethyst is quite simply Green Quartz. Most Prasiolite sold is used in jewellery settings, where it can substitute for far more expensive precious green gemstones. It is a rare stone in nature; artificially produced Prasiolite is heat-treated Amethyst. Most Amethyst will turn yellow or orange when heated producing Citrine, but some Amethyst will turn green when treated.
The important thing to remember with storage is to keep jewellery away from strong light, which can fade many gems. Amethyst, Ametrine, Aquamarine, Aventurine, Beryl, Citrine, Kunzite, Prasiolite, Rose Quartz and Smokey Quartz are all particularly at risk of fading in strong sunlight.
White Gold is an alloy of Gold and at least one white metal (usually nickel, Silver, or Palladium).
White gold's properties vary depending on the metals used and their proportions. The term White Gold is used very loosely in the industry to describe karat Gold alloys with a whitish hue. The term "white" covers a large spectrum of colours that borders or overlaps pale yellow, tinted brown, and even very pale rose. The alloys used in the jewellery industry are Gold–Palladium–Silver and Gold–Nickel–Copper–Zinc. The nickel used in some White Gold alloys can cause an allergic reaction when worn over long periods (also notably on some wristwatch casings). Gold is rarely pure Gold, even before another metal is added to make a White Gold alloy and often contains a mercury alloy from its production, which can cause an allergic reaction. Where possible I source my White Gold from within the EU where the usual mix is the former. It is impossible to know the mix in a preloved or vintage item, sadly; I usually have the item re-plated with Rhodium to minimise any risk. All new White Gold items are enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
