Wabi Sabi 039
A deep green 0.51 carat Chrome Diopside faceted in a brilliant cut by artist John Bailey and installed in Agate collected in Nevada.
Chrome Diopside is uncommon as a gem because it is rare in gem quality. It shows a deep green color said to hold the mysteries of the Universe and to act as a dowser of knowledge.
Agate takes a very long time to form and is very tough and durable. It has been used for art, talismans, and tools since time immemorial. Agate symbolizes strength, endurance, and consistency of character.
