Black Star gemstone is a member of the Diopside gemstone family. It is the birthstone for month of March. This star diopside is thought to re-energise one’s mind, body and spirit, and alleviate aggression and stubborn tendencies. Its strong magnetic force is believed to accelerate physical healing when held close against the skin of the injured part. It is also referred to as the ‘Crying Stone’, because it is said to bring ‘catharsis’ in form of tears, to cleanse past emotional trauma, pain and negative baggage. It is often associated with the feelings of love, commitment & fidelity, as also with enhancing one’s creativity.
Most of the quality Black Star diopside today comes from India, thereby earning it the colloquial name of ‘Indian Black Star’.
