Dioptase is extraordinarily bright green in colour, and it is often mistaken for emerald. Just the sight of it can lift the spirits, making it an excellent antidepressant. It is balancing, detoxifying, and stimulates the immune system, encouraging us to embrace health fully and continue to heal. It can alleviate headache and nausea, and can be an aid in pain relief.

Dioptase balances and aligns the Chakras, and can help disparate energies to coalesce and work in harmony with one another. Spiritually, it clears and opens both the Heart and Upper Heart Chakras, and allows us to feel love and compassion on the highest level, even for our enemies. Dioptase's message is so powerful, that it can stimulate the heart from a distance, for example, when placed on an altar.
