Chrome Diopside .5 - .8" Gem A+ Tumbled #LV3971
Size: .5 - .8"
In my healing practice, I use Diopside primarily as an overall psychological and emotional healer. For people who have unspoken or unexpressed grief, Diopside can allow its gentle and healthy expression. It is a very difficult stone to obtain in tumbled form, so whenever I do find it, I tend to stockpile and give it to my clients who might be facing recovery from traumatic illness or surgery. It is a powerful support stone for those who are distressed so which may make it difficult to enjoy life. It is also wonderful for the heart chakra to increase one's capacity for compassion and inclination toward service to others. Diopside is also very inspiring for creative energies.
Tumbled stones are smaller pieces of crystals or rocks that have been processed in a rock tumbler with water, sand, and grit. Over weeks in a tumbler, the stone edges and surfaces become smooth and sometimes highly polished to bring out the beauty of the stone. The pleasing shape and size of tumbled stones make them desirable as more inexpensive and usable crystals.
