This dioptase has real character. I don’t normally look for everyday shapes in minerals, but this one is hard to miss commenting on – to me the dioptase cluster looks like a kite with a tail. The largest dioptase crystal is 1.2 cm long. From the optimal viewing angle, this specimen is in excellent condition, with no damage visible. The large crystal has a cleaved bit at the back of the termination, and there are incomplete crystals around the back of the piece, but super from the front. Totally distinctive, with great aesthetics.
