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 piece bears a Sterling Silver Sri Yantra (literally meaning "holy instrument") Mandala, symbolizing the junction between the physical universe and its unmanifest source according to Hindu Mysticism.
