- Dioptase with Wulfenite and Molybdofornacite
- Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 4.1 x 3.8 cm
- Tsumeb Mine, Tsumeb, Namibia
A rich and beautiful dioptase miniature, on its own merits, I feel. Moreover, you have a sharp central gem wulfenite, as a bonus! Careful study of the backside shows association with tiny pistachio green crystals of the rare mineral molybdofornacite in scattered crevasses throughout.
