Chevron prasiolite is a combination of green amethyst and white quartz that is often found in a V shape, or zig-zag motif.

Green amethyst is produced when heat is applied to amethyst containing iron compounds with specific properties. Most amethyst turns yellow, orange or brown when heated, but this type turns green instead. Since amethyst by definition is a purple form of quartz, green amethyst is sometimes called green quartz and could also be referred to as prasiolite. The common practice of heat-treating stone does not compromise the value of the resulting colored natural gemstone.
