I wrapped my last two Russian Diptase crystal clusters this week. They are gorgeous --there is something about this gem that just draws you in!
Dioptase is a natural deep emerald green gem with cubic crystals. The color is AMAZING and the crystals have nice flash & sparkle! I think dioptase is prettier than emerald and it's definitely more durable. Being a May baby, I guess I'm drawn to an alternative to emerald (the May birthstone). I have yet to find an emerald I can't break or lose within weeks! Watches and emeralds--I have the worst luck with both of them!
I'll be listing these 2 pieces in my store this week with a few new phantom quartz pendants. I have many new pieces in the works--I've been playing with my torch too--so look out!
