Dioptase With Heterogenite and Calcite

ID: CC4857

Smooth and botryoidal lustrous black Heterogenite has formed a layer on crystals of white Calcite. Later micro-crystals of feathery yellow green Conichalcite, can be seen rarely on the Heterogenite. Followed by colourless inter grown rhombs of Calcite. Lastly, well developed emerald green crystals of Dioptase have been deposited on the Calcite crystals. A great paragenesis specimen to see.
