Tips for Choosing
Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.
Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.
Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

Chrome Diopside is an extraordinary gift from the Earth. It was first mined from the wilderness of Eastern Siberia and became available to the world in 1988.
Chrome Diopside carries the energies of a master teacher who engages the healing power of natural forces. This rich forest-green gemstone provides a conduit to the knowledge of natural earth forces and wisdom. When worn as a necklace, it acts as a personal mentor and teacher of earth medicine. The inner-world Guardian of Chrome Diopside will heighten your awareness of the natural forces that surround you on earth and will open your physical and subtle bodies to these healing forces. In this way, Chrome Diopside supports both healing and the evolution of the human form helps you to discover the harmony and purpose of your relationship to this planet.
Chrome Diopside’s mentoring will awaken your inner knowing and ability to take practical steps to heal yourself and others with the natural forces available to you. Using this gem will unlock the healing potential within you as well as in other gems, plants, water, and other natural forces. This mentoring occurs through communication with the subtle energies of the human form, and may be experienced both consciously and subconsciously. Those who are able to bring their awareness to the education that is being communicated may experience subtle, dreamlike messages or shifts in awareness and understanding.
By acting as an energetic mentor of natural healing and health, Chrome Diopside supports any natural healing journey. It also confers a degree of protection and guardianship as it reveals deeper truths and guides you to implement them.
Practical Applications of Earth Knowledge
The energy and character of Chrome Diopside is jovial and protective. Yet it will challenge you to confront the truth in any areas of your life where you may not be fully enacting the wisdom you already have. Many times we say we “know” we should do something for our health and wellbeing, but somehow we fail to act on that knowledge. Chrome Diopside will confront us with areas where we are not taking care of ourselves. At the same time it will guide us to understand the need and means for behaving in ways that truly benefit our physical bodies.
The physical body is made up of earth elements designed and organized by the codes in our DNA and held in the ancestral lineage of our mitochondria. We are designed to adapt, absorb, and integrate the natural elements of the earth into our physical incarnation. Chrome Diopside supports us to restore our connection with and deep, inherent capacity to respond to nature in ways that are profoundly healing.
Modern life has created an environment that sometimes damages our ability to respond to these vital forces in nature. The effects of environmental toxins and electromagnetic disturbances can hinder our cell membrane functions, our enzyme functions, and our DNA expression. Chrome Diopside reminds us that we are designed to be able to heal and grow strong and wise from direct interaction with nature. The gem’s energy reawakens the cellular capacity to respond to these natural earth elements by restoring the original ability to be in harmony with our natural world.
We all have both a physical and a spiritual lineage that influence which sources we can draw strength and healing power from. Chrome Diopside reminds our bodies of their ancient connection with natural forces and supports our ability to use these forces with more skill and mastery.
Awakening Your Strength and Wisdom
Chrome Diopside can help you understand that the most universal forces and energies of nature are very personal realities. You have your own unique relationship with each one of these forces and you are experiencing them right now. To fully unlock the potential for optimal health and wellness as a human being, you must understand that you have this unique and personal experience of being in a body and living a human life. This intimate and signature relationship is a gift given to you by your ancestors and their own ancient relationship to this planet. With whatever limitations you are currently experiencing, it is highly likely that you have strength and wisdom that is resting inside of you unused. These can be uncovered by reawakening this ability to draw vitality, harmony, and healing from the natural forces all around and within you.
The Study of Natural Things
A Chrome Diopside necklace is an excellent tool for enhancing the study of any aspect of the Earth, geology, and the effect of natural forces on the life forms of the planet. It also serves as an inner-world mentor for studies of shamanism and natural healing methods. Chrome Diopside helps you become aware of and in harmony with the consciousness in Earth and Stone, Water and Minerals, Fire, Air, and the intelligent energies of the Earth.
Using Chrome Diopside with Other Gemstones
If there is a particular gemstone that you are struggling to understand or work with, Chrome Diopside can be worn along with it to better access the uses and wisdom of the energetic properties of that other gemstone. Chrome Diopside’s energetic mentorship will help you understand whether or not you should be using that gemstone at a given time and in what manner.
For Healthcare Practitioners
Chrome Diopside can be used by healthcare practitioners who wish to enhance their knowledge and practice of natural healing techniques. Wearing Chrome Diopside can—
The color of therapeutic-quality Chrome Diopside is the deep, vivid green of the forest. The subtle yellow undertones of its rich green hue differentiate it from Emerald, which has sea-green to blue undertones.
Therapeutic Chrome Diopside has a high degree of clarity and translucency; the higher the quality of the gems, the more translucent they appear. Necklaces display consistent color throughout. When larger gems are held in front of a light source, the forest-green color explodes and is bright and rich.
Because Chrome Diopside’s vivid color and clarity occur naturally, this gemstone is rarely, if ever, treated to enhance its appearance. Gemisphere’s Chrome Diopside is completely natural and free of any artificial treatments that could diminish its therapeutic effectiveness.
Chrome Diopside is unlike any other gemstone I have worked with. Wearing it gives me a feeling of calm, steady wisdom—like I am connecting to the stillness of inherent knowledge of the forces around me. A simple knowingness shines through. I find it surprisingly supportive and strengthening of character.

Wear It Around Your Neck
One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use a Chrome Diopside necklace is to wear it around your neck. There the gems will silently work for you as you go about your day. At night while you are sleeping, you can wear the necklace or keep it within three feet of your body to maintain your connection with the gems.
To bring the Chrome Diopside’s energy into your body more quickly, when you place it around your neck, breathe deeply.
Chrome Diopside can be worn continuously, but keep in mind that if you are currently engaging in behaviors that are unhealthy for you, Chrome Diopside is likely to make you more uncomfortable with any bad habits, any unhealthy foods or substances you are ingesting, or relationships that are not in your best interests.
It is always wise to be sensitive to your body’s responses. If you start to feel a headache or significant discomfort, take the necklace off for a while. Then allow your body time to adjust to the changes initiated by the gems by wearing them for only an hour or two a day. Gradually increase this time until you can comfortably wear the gems for as long and often as you wish.
Although you may begin to feel the energy within minutes of wearing it, its full effects will take time. Chrome Diopside’s work can be greatly enhanced with conscious meditation in nature. It takes hundreds of thousands or millions of years for a gemstone to grow in the Earth. Similarly, sometimes the therapeutic action of gemstones needs to be slow and deliberate.
Cleanse Chrome Diopside Regularly
To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Chrome Diopside necklace. Learn more about these methods.
Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.
Salt Bed: 2 – 3 times a week, lay the gems in a half-inch of sea salt for at least an hour or overnight. Place a thin natural-fiber cloth between the salt and the gems.
Water Rinse: Rinse the gems in alternating warm and cool water 2 – 3 times a week. Avoid using hot or cold water.
Special Notes: Chrome Diopside will be deeply rejuvenated by spending some time directly on the earth in a shaded spot.
Avoid cleansing Chrome Diopside in sunlight for more than a few minutes. Avoid clay cleansing, which may dull the gems’ polish.
When Your Necklace First Arrives
When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
