Diopside is an important rock forming mineral in several metamorphic and basic to ultra basic igneous rocks, also found in meteorites.
I mined this crystal in the 1990s on one of my yearly rockhounding trips to Ontario and Quebec. For many years we traveled the 2000+ mile (one way) journey to Canada to sell at the rock swaps on the weekend and we would mine during the week. It was a great way to meet new friends, do a little recreational mining and to escape the dreaded Texas heat.
