Item Description

Outstanding miniature of sharp, well-defined Dioptase crystals on a Quartz matrix. The Dioptases range up to 1.1 cm in length, and they have superb luster and color. What makes this so incredibly special, though, is how well the Dioptase crystals stand up on matrix. Rarely do you get to see and appreciate them so much. One crystal in front does have a little edgewear, but the rest are pristine and gorgeous.
