Sterling Silver Black Star Diopside Ring sz 7
~Designed in Nepal
This Sterling Silver Star Diopside Ring has a beautiful pattern of eight spirals forming together with leaves on each end in an open filigree design.
At the center of this pattern is a lovely oval Black Star Diopside cabochon. This ring is very wide, and on each side points in to a “v” shape.
Black Star Diopside exhibits a star like phenomenon known as Asterism. These stones contain inclusions in the form of needles that align to produce the white 4-rayed star. It is unique in this sense because it is the only gemstone to exhibit a 4-rayed star.
Black Star Diopsides is quite often confused with Black Star Sapphires, or Star of India. However, the sure-fire way to differentiate the two stones is by viewing the rays of the star.
A Black Star Diopside will exhibit four rays whereas the Black Star Sapphire will exhibit six (occasionally twelve), rays.
This difference is caused by the physical make-up of each of the stones and the presence of a different number of crystal faces for the light to refract off of.
A gorgeous ring that can be worn anytime.
