Item Description

One of the better known, yet hard-to-find rarities in the gem world. This stone is a beautiful deep neon green color, very very slightly included "Oval" cut gemstone. Chrome Diopside is a very rare gem considering that the only good rough comes from one place in the world, and the locality is under snow for nearly 10 months per year! It is very very difficult to find this material in clean stones so inclusions are accepted by most collectors and dealers.
