This specimen features a beautiful deep green 1.4 cm dioptase crystal on white calcite. The contrast is superb. The dioptase crystal is sharp and highly lustrous, and it exhibits some parallel growth habit at one termination. It is in excellent condition, to the eye there is no damage. With magnification there are a couple of tiny chips, but you really have to seek these out with the magnification and I’m only mentioning them to be complete in my description – looking at it in the cabinet, it is razor-sharp and clean. Around the side there are additional dioptase crystals, two of which are in perfect condition, one has minor chipping and and some are incomplete. From the main display angle, these look great. A super display specimen of dioptase!
