CHROME DIOPSIDE is one of nature’s most vivdly coloured gem treasures. Chrome diopside was officially discovered in 1988 from Russia's Eastern Siberia, but deposits have been found elsewhere in Pakistan, Australia, Canada, Madagascar, Brazil and South Africa.
Chrome diopside has been growing in popularity for jewelry due to its affordability and striking resemblance to more expensive gems such as emerald and tsavorite garnet. Chrome Diopside gets its vivid green color from chromium. Chrome diopside is not a traditional birthstone, but it is associated with the zodiac sign of Pisces as well as Gemini and Virgo.
