The aim of this work was to classify the diopside rocks in terms of the concentration of impurities and to make a preliminary assessment of the possibility of using them in silicate applications. The results of investigations of more than 20 types of diopside rocks of different deposits showed that the oxides silicon, calcium, and magnesium are most frequently encountered in them. In addition some samples contain phosphorus oxide which is typical of minerals of the apatite group.
