Round Brilliant Cut Chrome Diopside, Russia, 0.83 cts

This is a very pretty chrome diopside that looks just like a much more expensive tsavorite garnet. This stone is a bit on the soft side, and I would recommend it for use in a protective mounting or pendant rather than having it exposed in a ring. It seemed a lot like Tanzanite during cutting, so I would imagine it will be comparably durable for jewelry use…which isn’t all that durable actually.
