Siberian Russian Gem Mining Information

Chrome Diopside is a gem found in Siberia - and is commonly known as the Russian Emerald. It is very rare, and prices have been climbing steadily as it makes a name for itself in the marketplace. Prices climb due to market recognition of its beauty, its rarity, and general lack of overall supply.

Mining Chrome Diopside can be very tough to do. In sub-zero temperatures, a man's strength is diminished greatly. Too much exposure can result in hypothermia and death. Miners take every precaution and can not mine during the bone-crushing winter months.

Chrome Diopside Mines are found near kimberlite shafts near the mountains in Siberia.
