Chrome Diopside ("Russian Emerald") in the deepest, richest emerald green is featured in this stunning Tree of Life pendant wire wrapped in sterling silver.

The Tree of Life is a concept that's been featured in myth, story and legend literally all around the world. Since ancient times, people have used variations on the theme. Connecting all things - the realms of the spirit, the physical, the Divine and the mundane - the roots of the Tree and the branches touch all things and bring them together in harmony.

This pendant is handmade using painstaking wire-wrapping techniques. Hand hammered sterling silver plated wire frames and encircles the pendant, and then sterling silver plated, non-tarnish wire is used as the roots, trunk and branches of the tree.

The micro-faceted Chrome Diopside rondelles of this pendant are just gorgeous! Very high quality gemstones with beautiful color and clarity. They make for a very majestic, very elegant pendant. The rondelles are a range of 2.5-4mm in size.

++++++++++ PLEASE NOTE ++++++++++
CHROME DIOPSIDE IS BECOMING EXTREMELY RARE AND PRICES HAVE BEEN STEADILY RISING. Even through a gem wholeseller, it's now running upwards of $100 and more a strand. This makes it almost impossible to be able to offer and it's why this is the ONLY Chrome Diopside Tree of Life pendant available on etsy. I have VERY limited stock of this gem left and at these gem prices, I won't be able to offer this pendant much longer. Do NOT miss a chance to get this stunning gemstone!!
------------------------------------------------------------


Chrome Diopside isn't as well known as other gemstones and though it has an ugly name, it's one of the most stunning gems you'll ever find. The color is so rich, so deep and so intense it just doesn't seem real. But, Chrome Diopside is an all natural untreated gemstone -- no heat, no radiation, no diffusion and no oils are used. This makes Chrome Diopside the most pure semi-precious gem available.

Chrome Diopside is also called "Siberian Emerald" because of it's rich, amazing green. Many people say Chrome Diopside is what Emerald wishes it could be when it grows up! The name Diopside is derived from the Greek word 'di' meaning two, and 'opsis', meaning vision. The "Chrome" part comes from the element Chromium which is what gives it the rich, green color. This is also what gives Emeralds their green color.

Chrome Diopside is believed to be a creative stone, increasing creative visualization and helping to manifest desired goals. Found only in remote Siberia, it can only be mined three months of the year making it a rare and valuable gemstone.

Chrome Diopside is also a wonderful alternative to the May birthstone of Emerald. I am a May baby and have taken advantage of Chrome Diopside's beauty myself and own several pieces of it in lieu of more expensive Emerald. Emeralds are beautiful, but outside my budget and the quality and stunning intensity of color in Chrome Diopside makes it a wonderful substitute!


Measuring approximately 1.25" in diameter (not including bail), it's a lovely size both for everyday and special occasion wear. You will receive the exact pendant pictured. You won't find another like it anywhere!

Chains available SEPARATELY here in the shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/PhoenixFireDesigns?section_id=7776955

A lovely gift for someone who is born in May or who just loves the amazing color of Chrome Diopside. It is a gorgeous stone and makes for a striking piece when worn!

Frequently asked questions about PhoenixFireDesigns

I gladly accept custom orders! If something I have made sold and you're like another, or if there's something you like but want personalized, or if you have an idea for something different please feel free to convo me with your thoughts! I'm happy to work with you to make the perfect, personalized item for your needs.

Payment is due IN FULL when order is placed. This is because I often must purchase supplies specific for your custom piece and sadly, I have had people confirm a custom order, then I order supplies and create it for them, only to decide they don't have the money to pay. As a result of a handful of unscrupulous buyers, I must now request payment in full up front.

Custom orders are FINAL once the item is shipped. Thank you
By its very nature, handmade jewelry is going to be inherently more delicate than something mass-manufactured. It's important to always apply the "last on; first off" rule meaning put your jewelry on last when getting ready and take it off first.

Permanent wire coatings, protective coatings, non-tarnish finishes and gemstones can be damaged by exposure to various chemicals, including things like lotions, hairsprays and perfumes among others.

It's also important to NEVER submerge handmade jewelry in any kind of liquid, nor use any abrasive cloths, brushes or cleaners as it can damage the piece. Do not wear in the shower, tub, pool or other time when the piece may get submerged in water.
I'm happy to send an item directly to a gift recipient. Simply note in your order that you wish it to go to a different gift address. I am also happy to include a note to the recipient as well - just tell me what you'd like in the "notes to seller" section at checkout.

Full gift wrap in a box is available as an add-on to any order via this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/256161290/gift-wrapping-with-sage-green-damask-box

Turner personally, from conversing with customers, photographing jewelry, creating each piece from scratch, through to wrapping and shipping each every package.
