Chrome diopside is a chromium-rich, transparent to translucent variety of gemstone-quality calcium magnesium silicate. It is one of the rarer varieties of diopside and belongs to the pyroxene family of minerals, which is most famous for its attractive forest-green color.
In ancient times, some people believed green diopside had fallen from the tree of life and therefore the dead should be buried with a diopside to ensure renewal of life. In some cultures green diopside was associated with peace and tranquility and put on the forehead before rest, in order to ensure sweet dreams. Chrome diopside is believed to protect from all evil and bad memories.
The name ‘diopside’ was derived from the Greek words ‘di’ and ‘opsis’, meaning meaning ‘two’ and ‘vision’. Due to the origin of its name, diopside has earned a reputation for being a visualization stone, which is thought to increase creative vision, as well as awareness. It is thought to be able to improve intellect, most particularly mathematical, analytical and statistical ability. In addition, chrome diopside can alleviate aggression and stubbornness, while enhancing the emotions of love and commitment.
When storing your chrome diopside gemstones and jewelry, always store them away from other types of gems. If possible, wrap them individually in a soft cloth or place them separately inside a fabric-lined jewelry box.
