A beautiful small miniature of translucent to part gemmy, emerald-green Dioptase crystals on milky white rhombohedral crystals of Calcite from the Tsumeb mine in the Otjikoto Region of Namibia. Many of the Dioptase crystals are double terminated and are developed up to 1 cm long and have a bright, highly lustrous surface. Beneath the specimen can be seen a little pinkish Dolomite matrix together with glassy, equant Cerussite crystals and apple-green Conichalcite.  A pleasing Dioptase miniature from the Tsumeb mine.
