Chrome Diopside Jewelry is made from chrome diopside mineral with a large number of shades. From Greek the name translates as “di” - double, “opsis” - “face”. It is not for nothing that it is called “two-faced”, because its palette of colors is vast and diverse.In nature, there are diopside red, yellow, brown, green, purple, pink and black shades. The second name of the stone “malakolit” is characterized by a low indicator of hardness (the malakos is soft) and the place in which it was first found (allalit — the Ala river in Italy). In its pure form, diopside (CaMg (Si2O6)), belonging to the pyroxene group, is colorless and consists of silicon oxide, magnesium and calcium. Often the composition of the mineral contains inclusions of manganese, iron, vanadium, zinc, aluminum, titanium, sodium and potassium, on which the saturation of a particular color depends. Glass or pearl luster, a high coefficient of softness and low density, which with an increase in the composition of the mineral chromium or iron begins to increase, are characteristic of diopside.
The color palette of diopsids is so extensive that the mineralogists decided to group them into separate species and assign the following names: Black Star is a black matte type of mineral with the effect of asterism, thanks to which, when a directed ray of light hits, a 4-ray star is visible on the surface of the stone. Chrome-diopside (“Siberian emerald”) is a stone in which a bright green color is provided by an admixture of chromium oxide. Lavrovit is an apple-green or herbal mineral with a high proportion of vanadium. Salit is an opaque yellow-green type of diopside. Antohroit - a stone of gentle pink color with the presence of manganese in the composition. Shefferite is a type of diopside of red-brown hues, which are provided with a high content of manganese. Jeffersonite is a stone with varying shades, from saturated green to brown, almost black. Violan is a violet or purple-violet mineral whose saturation depends on the percentage of manganese and iron in the composition. Diopside is also distinguished by its structural features and the presence of other minerals in its composition. The effect of the cat's eye is peculiar to minerals with tubular inclusions. Stones in which magnetite is present have an asterism effect and are called star diopside.
