About chrome diopside
Chrome Diopside is a beautiful and rare green stone. For most of the time since its discovery in 1988, chrome diopside was sourced from only one location, Russia’s Eastern Siberia.
Chrome Diopside is called the Yakutian Emerald
Chrome Diopside Mines are found near kimberlite shafts near the mountains in Siberia. The mining of Chrome Diopside can be very tough to do. In sub-zero temperatures, a man’s strength is diminished greatly. That is one reason why it is only mined three months out of the year, July – August.
Chrome Diopside makes an excellent substitute for other green gemstones, mainly Emerald and Tsavorite, as it exhibits a similar color at a fraction of the cost. In fact, Chrome Diopside is the most affordable of all the rich green colored gemstones. Chrome Diopside is not treated. Unlike most other gems, which are heated, irradiated or oiled – there is absolutely NO treatment given to Chrome Diopside.
