It is a very common mineral and forms as an additional mineral in many environments and is an important component of scarlet rock. It is a series of Hedenbergite, the iron equivalent of Diopside, and can be partially replaced by it. A diopside is a calcium-magnesium silicate belonging to the group of minerals. Gem quality crystals of diopside are faceted into attractive gems that are occasionally seen in commercial jewelry. with the heartbeat of the planet &

Diopsid is a mono-clinic pyroxeneral containing the formula making up the formula making up much of our product MgCaSi2O6. Together with Heddenbergite (FeCaSi2O6) and Augit it produces a full range of solids solvents and with orthopyroxen and pigeonite sub-solvents. In the monoclonal priismatic grade, it produces variable-coloured, but typical blunt verdant beads. Diopsid is found in ultramafish (kimberlite and peridotite) magmatic rock, and diopside-rich August is found in mixed rock such as olive-based andesitic.

Diopsid is also found in a large number of metamorphous rock, e.g. in contacting metamorphous scars, which have been evolved from highly siliceous-dolomite. This is an important earth shell rock and occurs in kimberlitic and alkaline base zeolites. There is a mixing void between diopside and pygeonite at relatively high temperature and between diopside and orthopyroxes at lower one.

Calcium/ (calcium+magnesium+iron) in diopside produced with one of these two other pyrogens is particularly susceptible to elevated ambient conditions, and the composition of the diopside in pearidotite xenolites was important for the reconstruction of Earth's surface weather. The name Diopside is derived from the ancient grecian d s, "twice", and ópsè, "face", in allusion to the two types of orientation of the perpendicular aprism.

The first discovery and description of Diopside was made around 1800 by the natural scientist Jose Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva from Brazil. Diopsidebased and glassceramics can be used in various technology areas. In the 1980s, a diopside-based glassceramic called "Silceram" was made from blastfurnace ash and other scrap materials by researchers at Imperial College, UK.

Likewise, diopside-based and glassceramics have prospective uses in the fields of biomass fuels, immobilisation of radioactive wastes and sealants in SOFC. His Carter, C.B. Ponton, R.D.
