Brilliantly green and exceedingly rare, Chrome Diopside is a highly sought-after stone since the brutally cold mines where it is found in Siberia are only able to be mined for three months out of the year. Its name is derived from the Greek words for “two” and “vision,” and as such is said to be a “dowser of knowledge” – allowing the wearer to gaze into the worlds beyond our ordinary reality. Chrome Diopside is also upheld as one of the most potent tools for those who wish to connect with the mystical energies of Mother Earth.
This Pinecone has been anointed with our "Merkaba" emblem, cast in Sterling Silver. Merkaba - "Mer" meaning Light, "Ka" meaning Spirit, and "Ba" meaning Body - is a powerful icon historically known as the "Vehicle of Ascension". The Merkaba opens the mind to increased awareness and promotes deep conscious interconnection.
The Crushed Crystal pattern around the outside of this center stone has been carefully mixed with a powerful Phosphorescent powder, then inlaid into the pendant -- so it glows brightly in the dark!
(The Center stone hasn't been altered from its original elegant form, and does not glow)
