A glowing, translucent crystal of really quite large size for the locality AND the species....when lit from behind, it is extremely beautiful in a glowing, softly colored way that Tsumeb dioptases, darker in color, are not. This piece is flattish on the backside, but just contacted and not damaged. It LOOKS like a Tsumeb dioptase at first glance, because of the size, but the color is lighter and the inner core more translucent than you'd expect from Tsumeb. But at first glance, it looks like a 5k Tsumeb toenail!
