ID: CC17479
From Mindouli in the Republic of Congo (also known as Congo-Brazzaville to clearly distinguish from the neighbouring DRC), this compact small cabinet specimen is a beautiful and superb combination of deep emerald-green Dioptase; powdery-sky-blue Plancheite and orangey-yellow Calcian Pyromorphite. A divergent group of gemmy Dioptase crystals, two to over 1 cm, radiate out from the centre and contrast beautifully against the vivid powder-blue Plancheite which coats most of the dark chocolate-brown matrix. Punctuating the display surface are drusy clusters of bright orangey-yellow Calcian Pyromorphite.  This specimen comes with a tailor-made, milled-profile acrylic base.  A highly aesthetic and interesting combination of Dioptase, Calcian Pyromorphite and Plancheite from the Republic of Congo.
