All gems have been tested by a smart pro gem tester but does not tell the difference between manmade and natural gemstones. Late in the 18th century, copper miners in the Ural Mountains of Kazakhstan thought they had discovered a huge emerald deposit in the Altyn-Tube Mine of Karagandy.By chemical composition, dioptase is hydrous copper silicate. It is a secondary mineral that precipitates from aqueous solution. The copper is derived from the chemical breakdown of primary copper and silica-bearing minerals in aerated groundwater. Its hardness of 5 puts it in the same class as apatite and turquoise. Dioptase has a density (also known as specific gravity) of 3.28 to 3.35, which is in the same range as peridot and tanzanite. Its refractive index is 1.644 to 1.709, similar to diopside.
Dioptase color ranges from emerald-green to bluish-green. It is typically transparent to translucent, with a vitreous to sub-adamantine luster. Deposits of dioptase are found in Chile, Kazakhstan, Namibia, Peru, Russia, Arizona in the USA, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Dioptase is one of a small number of copper-bearing gemstones.
Others include turquoise, chrysocolla, malachite, azurite, Larimar and Paraiba tourmaline. Due to its softness and its perfect cleavage, dioptase is only rarely set in jewelry. However, faceted dioptase is popular with collectors for its rich color and excellent luster. The small and well-defined deep-green rhombohedral crystals are also popular with mineral collectors.
