Dear Rick, Good observation but what is the solution? I just bought
some chrome diopside in Sri Lanka and I love the color BUT what can I
tell people they are so they appreciate them and don't get hung up on
the ugly name? Do you have or anyone else have a list of acceptable
names for all those badly named stones for romancing customers?
Looking forward to your answer,
