An unusual association for the mine, with malachite druse on top of dioptase! The color is phenomenal on the diop and the association with velvety light green malachite serves to enhance and contrast the darker, emerald-green dioptase! The diop crystals are to 1 cm and this is a rich, solid cluster of dioptase: quite a bit of it for the price, I think.
