Chrome Diopside - Raw


Origin: Merelani Hills, Arusha Region, Tanzania

This mineral is a chromium-rich calcium magnesium silicate and is one of the rarer varieties of diopside.  It was discovered in 1988, but since then has grown to be one of the most valued natural green gemstones, competing with emerald and tsavorite garnet.
