Here at ShopHQ, we know you love gorgeous jewelry at great prices. Let us introduce you to a unique and affordable gemstone, Chrome Diopside. Also called Russian Diopside, this stone comes in a rich, vibrant green color. It is one of the more affordable green gems, making it an easy jewelry piece to own. Chrome diopside is mostly mined in Yakutia and Siberia. The liberalization of the economy of the former Soviet Union has made it more readily available than it used to be. This stone is mostly available in small sizes: in the rare large sizes, the color actually becomes so rich that it is too dark. But for bright green accent stones, chrome diopside is ideal. ShopHQ.com features an assortment of rings, bracelets and necklaces with this stone accenting other popular semi-precious stones and gems.
