DescriptionDIOPTASE ON WHITE CALCITE MATRIX
Tsumeb Mine, Otjikoto Region, Namibia
The same information as the previous lot with the following exceptions. Instead of small dioptase crystals on large calcite crystals here we have the reverse: good sized dioptase crystals on small calcite crystals. As in the above case, the luster, and sharpness of the crystals coupled with the striking contrast between the blue-green and white coloration are prime factors in the high marks deserved by this specimen. The dioptase crystals coat the front, some of the top and sides of this piece. It measures 3 x 2 ¾ x 1 ¼ inches thick.
