Ethically Sourced

Diopside from Russia

This Diopside was mined in Irkutsk Oblast, Russia.

This lapidary hand-polishes stones in Mumbai, India. It is owned by two long-time friends and business partners. Unusual for India, factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. It is also an exporter and sells exclusively at large gem shows.

I first met this source at the 2017 Denver Gem Show. Our first encounter was short since it was my last day of shopping and I had already spent most of my budget, but their polished stock was the highest quality I had ever seen. A few months later, we met again in Tucson and this time I made sure to visit them at the beginning of the show!

In 2019, I was able to sit down with both owners and have a lengthy conversation about sourcing. Unlike most lapidaries, they were willing to speak with me in-depth about how they ensure their business is ethical. We talked about individual mines in India as well as how they source from other countries. We also talked about how they treat their own workers and about the links between business, karma, and God. Their willingness to talk and their pleasure at the conversation made me eager to develop and deepen this relationship.

Diopside Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published March 2015  •  Updated March 2024  •  Read Time: 7 minutes
Diopside is a green silicate mineral found in many igneous and metamorphic rocks.  When it is found in Kimberlite, an igneous rock, miners rejoice, because this is a sign that diamonds are nearby.  Diopside is also a common ore for Chromium, a silvery metal.  When Chromium is found in trace amounts however, it transforms the color of the mineral, it gives Diopside its pretty green shade and turns Rubies bright red!  Diopside is a stone that celebrates Mother Earth energy.  It is an excellent addition to gardens and plant magic.  It can also help us to be more conscious of our environmental impact.
