Specimen # 200109
Mineral: Dioptase
Location: Dioptase, Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
Size: 4.5 x 3.7 x 3.7 cm


A classic specimen of intense, lustrous green dioptase crystals on contrasting white calcite from Tsumeb. The dioptase crystals are vivid and glassy, with deep green and mirror-bright crystals. In the photos, the studio flashes are creating internal reflections.

In excellent condition – there are incomplete crystals (the top crystal is incomplete at the back and peripheral crystals where this was attached to adjacent rock) and otherwise all are complete and free of damage. This specimen is a real beauty.
