John Ruskin, 30-Chrysoprase DM ? IN SET – Drawing Matter

John Ruskin (1819–1900), 30. Chrysoprase, c. 1850. Mineral. 'A condition of silica, intermediate between flint and chalcedony, but varying in colour from white to green; dull in fracture, as the broken piece will show, better than the old surface; and never throwing itself into globular or stalactitic forms. It is found, I believe, only at one place in Europe, Frankenstein in Silesia, and is extremely respected by me because it is found nowhere in America. It is the most valuable form of silica except opal; but it is properly connected with flint and chalcedony, opal forming an entirely distinct family of minerals'.
