Diopside 4 Ray Star Cabochons

Diopside 4 Ray Star Cabochons

These fascinating natural stones have a 4 ray asterism which is very rare as other types of star gemstones have a 6 ray star. Diopside can also form with cat's eye chatoyancy, but an asterism is more common.

Star diopside's rays are slightly wavy creating the illusion that it is dancing across the surface of the stone. Viewing the stone under bright light will show the star at its best!
