This AAA-grade oval chrome diopside features a brilliant, spring-green color, emphasized by pristine faceting. This stone shows the superior cut, color saturation and active scintillation required to be classified as a top-quality AAA-grade stone. Use it alone to create a simple pendant or combine it with complementary-color stones to create more complex necklace, bracelet, and ring designs.
Chrome diopside is a member of the pyroxene family and contains chromium, an element that provides its rich green color, similar to that of tsavorite garnet. Lighter and darker crystal flashes can be seen inside the stone in different angles of light.
The oval cut is an even, symmetrical shape but elongated. The arrangement of its facets is similar to that of a round brilliant, designed to maximize light and color.
