Dioptase with minor Calcite (Ref: 6.2-923)

Tantara Mine, Shinkolobwe, Kambove District, Haut- Katanga, Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
62mm x 50mm x 43mm
minID: NQU-ANN
$800
Brilliant gemmy Dioptase crystals with intense emerald green color cover the face of the matrix. From the Haut Katanga area of the D.R.Congo, this fine older specimen has the top luster and color more like that sought after in Tsumeb specimens. More recent Dioptase finds tended to be more matte luster or had stepped faces, with much less flash. This is great for the locality and a classy Dioptase from any place. The crystals are very well-defined and reach 1.3 CM. In person this is a strong display specimen with color that is impossible to appreciate on a computer screen. Overall in very good condition, there is some chipping at the outer edges but most of the important crystals are perfect and the display impact is not diminished.
