DeKalb, St. Lawrence Co., New York, USA
Miniature, 4.3 x 3.3 x 1.9 cm
Ex. Kevin Brown
This is a large, really high quality crystal with deep color and a large translucent zone. The terminations are broad, lustrous, and well-developed, much more than you normally see for large diopsides from this classic locale. It is about 50 grams, so its sizable, as you can see. I have seen many short stumpy diopsides from this location over the years, turn up in old collections. Seldom have I seen one with such presence, because it is thick and fat and has such rich color. This is a superb single crystal. ex Kevin Brown collection
