The Crystal of the Day for Friday 23 August 2013 is Dioptase. Thought this would be a good representation of Venus, although I have found nowhere that it is necessarily related to Venus. Dioptase is a powerful stone to awaken love and compassion and to heal emotional distress. The beautiful green ray of dioptase makes it a heart stone on many levels. Dioptase supports the emotional heart, strengthens the physical heart and awakens the spiritual heart. Meditate with dioptase to open your inner eyes to your higher purpose.
Dioptase releases emotional patterns, assists in understanding roles we have played as well as the roles of others in our lives; excellent stone to emotionally assist in experiencing divorce, death, or any intense family trauma; stimulates forgiveness and healing of emotional wounds.
Colour: emerald green with a hint of blue
