Green Diopside Raw

Green diopside is a mineral belonging to the pyroxene group, known for its vibrant green coloration. It forms in metamorphic rocks under high-pressure conditions, often in association with other minerals like olivine, garnet, and serpentine. The green color of diopside is due to trace amounts of chromium or iron within its crystal structure.

In terms of appearance, green diopside typically occurs in translucent to opaque forms with a vitreous to greasy luster. Its color can range from light to dark green, sometimes exhibiting a slightly bluish or yellowish tint. The crystal structure of diopside is typically prismatic, forming elongated crystals or massive aggregates. It may also display pleochroism, meaning it shows different colors when viewed from different angles.

Green diopside is primarily found in regions with significant geological activity, such as Russia, Italy, Canada, and the United States. It is often used as a gemstone in jewelry, although its relatively low hardness makes it prone to scratching and requires careful handling. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, green diopside is also believed to have metaphysical properties, including promoting emotional healing, enhancing intuition, and fostering a connection with nature.
