Three Green Rocks

About this design:

Apparently green is still my favorite color. Seems almost every time I start a new design it winds up being done in green. The three green stones in this set are blood stone, jasper (I think) and chrome diopside.

The large disc is blood stone from one of my first LB orders. I love the rich color, the shine and the smooth surface of the stone. The lighter oval stones are jasper I think. I've had them for so long I don't remember where or when I got them. The small pebbles are chrome diopside which is one of my favorite stones. The ear wires and other components are either red brass or gold plate. I think that the gold color is a perfect choice for the three green stones.

Components:

blood stone, chrome diopside, jasper, GP spacers, chain and clasp, hand made red brass ear wires

    LRC This is so pretty. I can see why the chrome diopsite is one of your favorites. I love the matching earrings. And the spacers really make the stones stand out.

    from gemselect.com – Chrome Diopside is a compassionate and caring gemstone – it will help you overcome a broken heart or any sadness you may be feeling over a recent relationship break-up and it will help you empathize with others who may be suffering.

    This is a gorgeous set !! I find I also gravitate towards greens …never thought it was a favorite of mine yet I just had the house sided in green too….it is a calming color they sat and maybe we all need that ….the chrome dioxide in this is so sparkly and gorgeous it works so perfectly in this design

    I find I’m gravitating towards the greens and blues lately. Maybe because I need a more calming color then my traditional orange. This is a beautiful set…and the gold sets off the green perfectly.
