Gemmy, small dioptase
crystals and calcite
crystals share a rock matrix. The
dioptase has a lovely bottle-green colour, more beautiful than
images, and the specimen has a sparkle to it (seen when held in light),
difficult feature to portray in these images.
There is damage to some of the dioptase crystals on
the edges of the specimen. The specimen displays well on a flat surface.
