Uvarovite and Chrome Diopside bracelet set in Sterling Silver. Bracelet is adjustable from 7 to 8 1/2”. Beautiful shimmer in the Uvarovite. Photo just does not do it justice.
Uvarovite is lush emerald green in color, the only consistently green Garnet. Named for a Russian statesman, it is sometimes confused with Emerald because of its deep green color [Simmons, 172], and is hard to distinguish from the dark green Grossular Garnet, Tsavorite, even though their chemical compositions are different. It is very rare in gem form.
Instead, Uvarovite has small uniform crystals of calcium chromium silicate and is often found in its drusy form, a natural surface coating of tiny sparkling crystals covering a rock, sometimes made into beautiful jewelry. If a crystal is faceted or tumbled, it is almost certainly Tsavorite. Because it is so rare, Uvarovite is a very special crystal to give to a loved one as it symbolizes what is precious and lasting. [Eason, 271]
Uvarovite, with its intense energy, promotes prosperity and wealth. It assists one in learning to joyfully accept what is offered by the Universe, and by clearing the channels of receiving, one is more likely to accept the prosperity that is available. [Ahsian, 172]
Uvarovite promotes individuality without egocentricity, and at the same time links the soul into its universal nature. [Hall, 139]
