Chrome Diopside is the rare translucent variety of the gemstone-quality calcium magnesium silicate. This variety is chromium-rich causing the beautiful green coloration. Other impurities within the stone may cause different colors, including black and violet-blue. Chrome diopside is the most well-known variety of gem quality diopside (the other being black star diopside).The most plentiful deposits were found in 1988 in Siberia which made the stone available for use in jewelry. This is why it is sometimes also called Siberian Emerald, even though emerald is a highly valuable precious stone while chrome diopside is only a semi-precious gemstone. Pakistan is another noteworthy source for this gemstone. Chrome diopside is also found in several other parts of the world, although not in large quantities. Chrome diopside is made of gem quality calcium magnesium silicate, and gets its intense green hue from the presence of chromium.
