A rarely known gemstone, chrome diopside gleams in brilliantly vivid, bright green hues, a feature caused by the chromium element within it. A calcium magnesium silicate, with a relatively low hardness, it is best set as a pendant or earrings to avoid being scratched. Some stones have mesmerizing chatoyancy and asterism, as well as being magnetic.
All Cassandra Goad Jewellery is designed and made in our workshops in London.
Ever in search of the unusual and rare, Cassandra travels the world to source beautiful gemstones, either in the rough or cut form.
The craftsman works as an artist recreating the design in metal. The jewel is then mounted, assayed, polished and set.
