Dioptase Crystal Healing Properties

Dioptase is thought to heal the heart by helping to free us from the limits of our past. As such, it allows us to embody our fullest potential with joy and peace. Furthermore, it is believed to help us forgive and release karmic patterns, empowering us to be our true selves. Similarly, it may help release perceived feelings of lack and encourages a prosperity consciousness.

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.

Geological Description

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.

Affirmation

I forgive and release all the old patterns which have held me back, and I accept with an open heart the many blessings of my life.

Jewellery Care & 1 Year Warranty

In jewellery form, some crystals are more hardy than others. For everyday wearers, we recommend crystals that fall in the Quartz family or have a Moh's hardness level of over 5.5-6. Avoid excessive water exposure, especially in pools or the ocean and any harsh chemicals. Delicate crystals like Amber, Moonstone, Opal, and iron-based meteorites need gentle handling due to potential discolouration or structural risks. Store safely, and clean with care. Rest assured that our 1-year jewellery warranty covers any manufacturing defects. With proper care, we expect your pieces to last many years to come. In our 18 years of business, we still wear some treasures from our original collection! Learn more about our warranty and care guide here.
