Choice combination piece consisting of sharp, well-formed Dioptase crystals on a bed of blue Plancheite. The largest of the Dioptase crystals is 1 cm, and the color combination of deep green on baby blue is enchanting. This piece is aesthetic, and alluring in its simplicity. Plancheite is a very rare species from Tsumeb, and this combination of color and minerals is VERY rare.
