Dioptase is a fragile, copper-based mineral that has been used for almost 9000 years. It got its name from the greek words "dia", meaning doubling, and "optos", meaning visible in the late 1700s. This discovery first occurred in Kazakhstan where they believed they had found emeralds until further analysis took place. This mineral is often cut and used in jewelry in addition to being ground into pigments.
Dioptase is often associated as a stone to help with emotional grief, depression, and trauma. It is said to help "reset" your emotional state, allowing you to put forth more strength and effort in your confidence and acceptance.
