Chrome diopside is mostly mined in Yakutia and Siberia. Because of the economic changes in the former Soviet Union it is now much more readily available than previously. It is a rich green stone, similar in colour to chrome tourmaline, but unlike that stone it has a few inherent drawbacks when being used in jewellery. The hardiness is only 5.5 which makes it impractical to use as a ring stone, also chrome diopside is mostly available in small sizes: in the rare large sizes, the colour actually becomes so rich that it is too dark. But for bright green accent stones for pendants and earrings, chrome diopside is ideal. Location - Russia, Canada, South Africa Group - Pyroxene R.I. - 1.66-69 Hardness 5.5 - 6.5

Due to the nature of approbation, all stones are subject to availability
