Dioptase (unusual color and exceptional form)

Luishia Mine, Kambove District, Shaba, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
minID: KF8-6PW
44mm x 25mm x 13mm
$975
Striking, esthetic and unusual, this is a fine, undamaged piece with an "odd" color hue. The Shaba Dioptase can be quite impressive but rarely this delicate and sculptural, with no matrix. The color, in person, looks almost a Malachite green but with a brilliant glassy luster, there is good transparency too as seen in some of the best Tsumeb Dioptase. A fine specimen from any place this is especially nice for Katanga area.
