Here's something you don't see every day. This stone is a fantastic, intense green color, virtually eye clean "Emerald" 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 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 truly is eye clean, which makes it that much more desirable. Do not miss out on this one.
