About Chrome Diopside

Chrome Diopside is an even rarer form of Diopside and is one of the most important minerals for discovery and other geological work. The compound inclusions of Chromium within Diopside give it that lustery rich green colour that nearly makes it look fake. These enhanced Diopside specimens are almost always found as precursors to the mineral Kimberlite. Kimberlite is an igneous rock and the most important source of Diamonds. They are believed to have been formed within the Earth’s mantle, some 90-275 miles deep within our home planet. Volcanic and cataclysmic activity pushed fragments through the crust and onto the surface, giving us all an opportunity to harness the energy of Inner Earth.

Chrome diopside gemstones have been around a long time, but were only officially discovered in 1988. Originally, chrome diopside was sourced from Russia's Eastern Siberia, but deposits have been found elsewhere in the world. Pakistan is now considered a significant supplier for gem-quality chromium diopside. Other locations of chrome diopside rough include Australia, Russia, Canada, Madagascar, Brazil and South Africa. Chrome diopside has been growing in popularity for jewellery due to its affordability and striking resemblance to more expensive gems such as emerald and tsavorite garnet.

The term "diopside" comes from the Greek words "di" and "opsis," which mean "two" and "vision." It's no surprise then that this stone was viewed as one of visualisation and was sometimes placed on the forehead to help encourage good dreams by ancient peoples. Other cultures believed green diopside had come from the tree of life. Many people buried their dead with the gemstone to ensure renewal of their life.

Healing with Chrome Diopside

♥ Creativity ♥ Motivation ♥ Healing ♥ New Beginnings ♥ Balance ♥ Courage ♥ Generosity ♥ Breaking Addiction ♥ Clairvoyance ♥ Emotional Understanding ♥ Opportunity

Chrome diopside has long been used to boost creative vision and awareness. This green gemstone is also thought to be able to improve intellect and encourages the desire of one to learn. According to metaphysical beliefs, chrome diopside is used to help alleviate aggression or stubbornness while in turn enhancing love and commitment. Green diopside is said to be connected to the heart chakra.

Diopside is a stone of eternal enlightenment and healing, providing one pure restorative energy for each and every lifetime they endured. The building blocks of life force energy reside within Diopside and are part of the reason why spiritual practitioners adore the energy it outputs. The vibratory effects resonate deep within our soul, penetrating the limits our mind can no longer comprehend. It is within this layer of our being which houses the past life experience we’ve absorbed and have been a part of. When something is truly traumatising and resonates directly with your core, that emotion becomes solidified in your mind and body. Through time (albeit a lifetime) the memory will perish from the mind, but become embedded in our core. As your soul progresses and moves forward through another dimensional experience, that scar becomes immortalised and internalised. These are defining characteristics of what eventually become the foundation and allow for you to be exactly who you are right now.

Diopside reads, channels and directs this information outwards and grants one a rare opportunity into their past. Through deep meditation with a piece placed directly over the heart, one must work to relinquish the protective control we subconsciously placed on our emotional body. Through this, visionary experiences may take place over the days and weeks to come as you enrich yourself in the energies of Diopside. As our consciousness becomes more connected to a grounded, more planetary vibration, so do the dreams that you experience nightly. These experiences are all happening and channeling into your consciousness for a reason, and can only be understood and “decoded” by you or an extremely connected individual, such as a channeller, scribe, or even an extremely powerful reiki healer.

Those who use gemstones for healing have been known to use chrome diopside in the treatment of headaches, to regulate blood pressure, to encourage recovery after illness and to help those who suffer from addiction. Chrome diopside is not a traditional birthstone, but it is associated with the zodiac sign of Pisces as well as Gemini and Virgo.

Diopside is a monoclinic pyroxene mineral that occurs naturally in a variety of colours such as green, yellow and brown. Green is the most commonly found diopside colour, which gets its beautiful hue from traces of the element chromium; hence the name chrome diopside. This chromium-rich diopside is transparent to translucent in appearance with a good chance of high visual clarity. The most valuable chromium diopside gems have a deep forest green similar to tsavorite garnet.

While chrome diopside is not difficult to come by, medium green stones over 2 carats are incredibly rare as the larger the stone the darker it tends to be, even appearing nearly black. Chrome diopside does not receive enhancements to increase colour or clarity, making it a naturally lovely untreated stone option for jewellery.
