Diopside Jewelry

Product Details

Diopside: a new green on the scene

A relatively new addition to the jewelry world, diopside dazzles with a bright green hue. Diopside is colored by chromium, the same element that gives emerald its color, but diopside is a much more affordable gemstone.

Rare in nature, diopside acts as an indicator of diamonds and can even appear as an inclusion within a diamond.

In ancient times, some believed that diopside fell from the tree of life and should be buried with the dead to ensure the renewal of life. In other cultures, diopside was placed on the forehead at night to aid in peacefulness and encourage good dreams.

Today, diopside is believed to increase creativity and improve intellect and is associated with matters of the heart.

Diopside Jewelry Care & Handling

Diopside is on the softer side (5.5-6.5 on the Mohs scale) so care should be taken to avoid scratches and hard blows. It's best to store your diopside jewelry separately in box when not in use. Clean your diopside earrings, necklaces, diopside bracelets and rings with mild soap and water when necessary.
