Dioptase #10

Email
Measurements: 1" x 1" x 1/2"
$44.50

    Dioptase is an intense emerald-green to bluish-green copper cyclosilicate mineral. The best quality dioptase is found in copper deposits in Russia, Namibia, Zaire, Chile, and US (Arizona). These particular Dioptase minerals come from Kazakhstan, Russia. Dioptase is popular with mineral collectors and it is occasionally cut into small emerald-like gems. Dioptase and chrysocolla are the only relatively common copper silicate minerals. A dioptase gemstone should never be exposed to ultrasonic cleaning or the fragile gem will shatter. As a ground pigment, dioptase can be used in painting. Dioptase is a very powerful stone that awakens the higher heart chakra. It helps open the heart to encourage love and compassion and to heal emotional pain.
