Description: Dioptase and calcite crystals on rock matrix. The specimen has a few nicks.
When we purchased the specimen, it already had a blob of prestik on its bottom, that a previous owner obviously used for mounting it. We removed as much as we could, but there is still an area of about 13 x 9 mm that obviously has prestik on it.
