Dioptase
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 6.1 x 2.4 cm
Northwest Extension, Morenci Mine, Morenci, Greenlee County, Arizona
Ex. Harold Urish
SOLD

Dioptase from Morenci is a thing of rarity, and seldom do you see any large plates of quality. This is an extremely rare and fine example, with large crystals for the locale and rich coverage. It is an important example of dioptase from a US locale, and many people aren't even aware they exist as they are just so hard to come by. Collected in the 1980s, and ex Harold Urish collection
