You will receive two gems totaling a minimum of 6 carats of rough cut Russian Chrome Diopside Crystals. You could receive one gem that is 4 carats and one that is 2 carats, two 3-carat stones, or any other variation of individual weight, but the total of the two pieces will weigh no less than 6 carats.
This beautiful crystal is also referred to as Russian Emerald, and it is becoming more and more scarce as the few remaining chrome diopside mines that are accessible to miners are tapped out.
Chrome diopside is mined in the frigid conditions of Russia. Supplies of the gemstone are rare since the yearly temperatures average between 4° F to as low as -50° F. These extreme conditions cause restrictions to mining since conditions may become too dangerous.
Chrome diopside has long been used to boost creative vision and awareness. This green gemstone is also thought to be able to improve intellect and encourages the desire of one to learn. According to metaphysical beliefs, chrome diopside is used to help alleviate aggression or stubbornness while in turn enhancing love and commitment. Green diopside is said to be connected to the heart chakra.
Those who use gemstones for healing have been known to use chrome diopside in the treatment of headaches, to regulate blood pressure, to encourage recovery after illness and to help those who suffer from addiction. Chrome diopside is not a traditional birthstone, but it is associated with the zodiac sign of Pisces as well as Gemini and Virgo.
