Dioptase is a rare cyclosilicate mineral found in deserts near Copper deposits.  It is often found alongside Chrysocolla near the surface of the Earth.  Dioptase can be a dark blue-green or a vivid-green depending on the location.

Today, crystal healers say that Dioptase’s energy embodies the concept of “Namaste” (that which is Holy inside of me, greets that which is Holy inside of you).  It is a wonderful stone for yogis and anyone who seeks to truly embody our Highest Self and connect with the Divine within.

It brings abundance, vitality, and balance. Helps initiate change, renew ideas, and being in the moment. It is a stone that supports a positive attitude towards life and works in all areas of life to turn negative into positive.
