Item Description

A single, relatively large, bright emerald-green, sharply terminated Dioptase crystal is prominently displayed on stark white Calcite background. The 1.5 cm crystal is incredibly lustrous, exhibits the rich emerald color Tsumeb is renown for, and displays rich green internal reflections. There are two other smaller crystal on the piece that are nicely isolated and they measure 4 mm and 2 mm in length. This showy miniature really is dramatic!
