Dioptase is a powerful healer for the heart and opener for the higher heart chakra. Its wonderful blue-green color brings all the chakras up to a greater level of functioning and facilitates spiritual attunement, reaching the highest levels of consciousness. It has a dramatic effect on the human energy field. Psychologically, Dioptase promotes living in the present moment and, paradoxically, activates past-life memories. It supports a positive attitude to life and instills the ability to tune into one’s own resources. Working in all areas of life to turn negative into positive, it overcomes any sense of lack and enables fulfilling potential. It is especially helpful when you do not know what to do next, as it indicates your direction. Mentally, Dioptase is a strong mental cleanser and detoxifier. It releases the need to control others. Emotionally, Dioptase can act as a bridge to emotional healing, especially for the child within. Its green ray reaches deep within the heart to absorb festering wounds and forgotten hurts. It dissolves grief, betrayal, and sorrow and is extremely effective for healing heartache and the pain of abandonment. Dioptase teaches that ultimately pain and difficulty in a relationship is a mirroring of an inner separation from the self. Repairing that link and drawing in love at all levels, it can heal an emotional black hole that is desperate for love. This stone clears away perceptions as to how love ought to be and brings in a new vibration of love. Spiritually, Dioptase placed on the third eye activates spiritual attunement and psychic vision. It brings awareness of inner riches.
