This is a princess cut chrome diopside gemstone. It is 7x7mm and weighs approximately 2.23 ct.
Chrome Diopside is a relative newcomer in the gemstone world, but has attracted increasing attention for its intense green color. It is a relatively soft stone that doesn't qualify for rings or bracelets, but it makes stunning earrings and pendants.
In ancient times, some people believed green diopside had fallen from the tree of life and therefore the dead should be buried with a diopside to ensure renewal of life. In some cultures green diopside was associated with peace and tranquility and put on the forehead before rest, in order to ensure sweet dreams.
This gemstone is SI in clarity. There are inclusions but not visible to the naked eye. It also has some surface scratches, again not visible to the naked eye. This gemstone would set well in a pendant without flaws detracting from it's beauty. Because of the flaws we are selling this gemstone cheap.
