Diopside is commonly found in green, but there's also star diopside, which is usually black or blackish-green. This massive black star diopside, also known as Black Star of India, is one of a kind. The cabochon is expertly cut to show off its asterism. The asterism or star-like optical effect is caused by light reflecting from tiny, densely included, needle-like rutile fibers (aka, "silk") that are aligned perpendicular to the rays of the star.
Set in sterling silver, the pendant weighs 101g, and measures 63x40x30mm.
