Dioptase on Calcite is probably the most iconic of species combinations from the legendary Tsumeb mine in Namibia and this large miniature is a superb and well-priced example. Deep emerald green, highly lustrous Dioptase crystals to 1 cm almost entirely cover the white Calcite encrusted surface of a pink-tinged cream Dolomite matrix. The Dioptase crystals are primarily translucent yet, when closely examined, appear transparent and gemmy, only made translucent by internal flaws and reflection planes. A very showy and beautiful Tsumeb Dioptase.
