Dioptase and Chrysocolla
$1,250.00
Cabinet, 10.1 x 7.7 x 2.6 cm
Ray mine, near Kearny, Pinal County, Arizona

An extremely rare dioptase from the RAY MINE. Most people who see Arizona dioptase only see it from Morenci - this one was a big surprise to me and I doubted it until it was verified by an Arizona collector expert. The matrix is lighter weight than Morenci material, and the chrysocolla association is also distinct here. The dioptase here, though small in crystal size, has an incredible bright intensity and the crystals sparkle like sugar! It is a very beautiful, and rare, large specimen
