History and Uses
Dioptase was known to the prehistoric world. Three Neolithic pottery statues dated 7200BC were found with their eyes outlined with Dioptase paint. It was more recently rediscovered in a mine in Kazakhstan in the 18th century. At first, it was mistaken for Emerald due to its vibrant green colour. In 1797, it was named by the French mineralogist Rene Just Hauy after the Greek words dia “through” and optos “visible” referring to the way in which it can be seen to cleave in three directions inside the crystals.
Dioptase is a copper silicate mineral with a hardness of 5. Its prismatic crystals terminate in rhomboidal faces. It is found in arid climates in Chile, Namibia, Russia and the USA.
