Dioptase with Calcite

ID: CC17482
A choice miniature of lustrous emerald-green Dioptase crystals to 1.5 cm on colourless to milky-white Calcite from the classic occurrence at the Tsumeb mine in Namibia. A small matrix of mixed Calcite and pinkish-Dolomite is coated with 2 mm sharp rhombs of Calcite over which the highly lustrous Dioptase crystals have grown.  Seven larger Dioptase crystals dominate the coverage, but many smaller crystals are scattered over the milky-pale grey surface.  A beautiful specimen of Dioptase from Tsumeb.
