Here's something you don't see every day. This stone is a fantastic, intense green color, very very slightly included "Oval" cut gemstone of Chrome Diopside. Chrome Diopside is a very rare gem considering that the only good rough comes from one place in the world (which has a drastically shortened mining season due to the tremendous amount of annual snowfall), and the large percentage of the stones on the market are less than 1 carat. It is very very difficult to find this material in clean stones and inclusions are accepted by most collectors and dealers, but this gem is only very very very slightly included which is very good for this material. Do not miss out on this one.
