Item Description

Truly magnificent specimen consisting of a brilliant and lustrous 1.5 cm Dioptase crystal (terminated at the base if not atop), nestled at the top of an amazingly aesthetic Malachite fanspray. The fanspray is complete all around and on BOTH SIDES. A unique specimen...but even more interesting, this is primary malachite, not malachite replacing azurite, which is more common. The pics say it all. Just incredible. Valued $750-950
