This is a very pretty, classic Tsumeb dioptase specimen, in a large thumbnail size. The crystal on the end is 2 cm across, doubly terminated, and displays nicely! It is then perched upon another doubly-terminated crystal, also freestanding and with both tips on display. This is set atop a little cluster of smaller crystals (and repaired to it). This specimen has been repaired (or perhaps it is only stabilized, as we can see a hint of glue in UV light), although it can also be un-repaired to have the floater of the two larger crystals alone. Classic material from the 1980s.
