Prasiolite ,also known as green quartz, green amethyst or vermarine is a green variety of quartz, a silicate mineral chemically silicon dioxide.

Since 1950, almost all natural prasiolite has come from a small Brazilian mine, but it has also been mined in Lower Silesia in Poland. Naturally occurring prasiolite has also been found in the Thunder Bay area of Canada.[] As of February 2019, the only mine producing prasiolite is in Brazil but even that is almost mined out.
