Dioptase, Plancheite
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.0 x 1.7 cm
Christoph Mine, Kaokoveld Plateau, Kunene Region, Namibia
A striking set of three beautiful Dioptase crystals, surrounded by a dusting of Plancheite, on matrix. The Dioptases have excellent deep green color and superb luster. The largest of the crystals is 1.6 cm. Rarely do you have Dioptase crystals so isolated and so well defined. A terrific, aesthetic specimen. Ex. Charlie Key.
