Diopside Healing Properties

Ethically Sourced Diopside

Know where your crystals come from

This Diopside comes from a mine in the Sakha Republic of Russia.  It may be a byproduct of Diamond mining.

This lapidary drum tumbles stones in Cape Town, South Africa. It is a family business, founded by a father and passed on to his sons. Factory workers have safe conditions and are paid fairly. The lapidary sells primarily at two gemshows, one in the United States and the other in France.

I have been doing business with this source since 2014. They are the oldest tumbling company in the world and have more varieties, in more sizes, than any other known source. The company started in California in the 1950s and was eventually bought by a British immigrant who had young sons. Eventually the company moved to South Africa in order to be closer to the source of their best-selling stone and to have the legal rights to export it. The company is now run by the sons and their childhood best friend.

The current owners personally visit many small and large mines. To connect with artisanal miners in sub-Sahara Africa, they work with local Gem Dealers who travel far into the bush to buy from part-time miners. The majority of these Gem Dealers are women. Some, but not all, of their stones are labeled with country-of-origin. For those that aren’t, I ask the owners directly. As I’ve learned more about mining practices in individual countries, I have become increasingly selective about what I will purchase from them. However, they remain my preferred source for most of the stones I sell from sub-Sahara Africa.

Diopside Healing, Mineralogy, and History

Published March 2015  •  Updated July 2022  •  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.

    Such a good one again. Quite blingy. Thanks so much. Really feelin it. I feel like this one is pronounced for me. Citrusy soothingly electric zingyness. Tingly. Renewing, cleansing, revitalizing, reawakening, re-enlivening, re-interconnecting, re-instating.
