What are the names of some green rocks?

In other words, which kinds of rocks are green?


Answer by  lorel (274)

The most well-known green rock is the semi-precious stone, jade. Some other, more common green color could come from serpentine, olivine, or even copper ores.


Answer by  lorel (274)

Apart from emeralds, which would probably not be called rocks, as they appear as crystals in a matrix of rock, the green rocks with high value are jade - the most beautiful of course, serpentine and olivine. Many of these minerals don't appear to be very green until polished up though.
