Dioptase, Calcite
Miniature, 3.2 x 3.0 x 2.4 cm
Tsumeb Mine (Tsumcorp Mine), Tsumeb, Otjikoto (Oshikoto) Region, Namibia

A beautiful and sculptural specimen of gemmy, emerald-green dioptase crystals to 1.1 cm richly scattered on a box work cast of calcite crystals from Tsumeb. The dominating, large dioptase really sets this showy piece off.
