A STRIKING Tiger, Arizona CLASSIC of fibrous dioptase preferentially coating an excellent, finely reticulated cerussite crystal. This is very fine, old-time combination material and is always in demand. This probably dates to prior to the 1950s. Such richly colored dioptase-coated cerussites are incredibly uncommon and treasured. Ex. Richard Jones Collection.
