Item Description

Fabulous plate of solid Dioptase crystals from the famous Reneville locality. All the Dioptases are sharp, gemmy, and lustrous. The largest are about 1.4 cm in length, and there are several in that size range. Rarely do you find a plate so rich and beautiful. It is in person 3-dimensional, shaped like a cupped palm of your hand. It has A LOT OF COLOR FLASH and a big visual impact. Dioptases are notoriously hard to photograph. The plate is far better in person. A killer specimen from a classic old find. Valued $2500
