A leaning mound of snowy-white Calcite crystals is almost entirely obscured by a covering of deep emerald-green Dioptase crystals of between 2 and 4 mm across. The Dioptase, a copper silicate, is translucent with a high lustre and shows internal reflections when turned in a good light.  A beautifully crystallised specimen of Dioptase from the Tsumeb mine in Namibia.
