Well developed lustrous crystals of Dioptase are abundantly clustered and scattered over the specimen with the rare mineral Shattuckite. The specimen from the Omaue Mine, Namibia, which has an excellent covering of powder blue botryoidal rare Shattuckite on a Quartz matrix. Euhedral crystals of prismatic Dioptase with a deep emerald green colouration measuring to 1.2cm have formed on the Shattuckite. Micro-crystals of an undefined yellow mineral are formed on the Quartz. A neat specimen of Dioptase on Shattuckite from the specimen mining operation.
