Chrome Diopside

Chrome Diopside





It sounds more like an ingredient a chemist would use rather than a jeweler, but this gemstone is a striking emerald green color. Can react negatively to hydroflouric acid. Will actually melt under a jeweler's torch.

Most deposits are found primarily in Russia and Kenya.
