Found in India, Diopside derives from the Greek word 'di' meaning two, and 'opsis', meaning vision; This is in correlation to its ability to appear opaque in darkness and chatoyant in light. These dual-purpose origins are also reflected in its healing properties; it is believed to be a stone to encourage new values from old experiences. Its ‘star’ quality is seen in its four-rayed asterism when light is directly shone on the stone due to its prismatic structure.
