Dioptase

ID: CC1721

A single beautifully formed translucent Dioptase crystal with dark green colour, enhanced by internal flashes of electric green, sits upon a bed of opaque white Calcite crystals of 1-2mm size, intergrown with apple green Duftite. An excellent example of a Tsumeb Dioptase, and rare to see an isolated crystal this big with no smaller crystals around it.
