Dioptase Crystals on Quartz
Dioptase Crystals on Quartz from Christoph Mine, Kaokoveld, Namibia
Collection Robert Lavinsky
Description A remarkably unusual piece with starkly isolated crystals of Dioptase, perched on Quartz. The razor-sharp, pristine, major Dioptase crystals reach 1.9 cm, fairly good size from any locality. While not gemmy, they are quite translucent. The smaller crystals to the lower left are also compete, though show some minor contacting. This is a unique style of combination, not similar to material found at other Dioptase localities in the isolation upon crystalline Quartz matrix. Ex. Charlie Key.
