haven't given it to the receiver yetHaven't had a chance to look at it carefully yet. It's a gift for my mother for Christmas to replace one she lost about 6 months ago. I love anything cobalt blue and am not really a fan of green, but chrome diopside is beautiful and I know she will love it. December 06, 2013
Purchased as a gift: Yes, I gave/will give it as a gift.
The stone I received looks just like the pictureUnfortunately, this isn't necessarily a good thing. I'm happy the reviewer before me was satisfied with their stone and mine does have the same good color and openness but it also has the same inclusions shown in the picture.
I'm torn on this purchase as the inclusions are very eye visible but you also can't complain about the reduced price on a chrome diopside of two carats with good, open color and cut with nice sparkle . January 31, 2013

Purchased as a gift: No, it is not a gift.
Still trying to figure out why it was on sale...Nearly 2 cts of chrome diopside for under 40 bucks. Great color, clarity, not too dark. You made my day, jtv! August 08, 2012
