Diopside -Classic gem crystal with Tremolite
DeKalb, St Lawrence Co.
New York, United States
3.6 x 1.5 x 1.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $575


A fine old DeKalb, New York Diopside crystal with exceptional transparency and color. This has a "crown" of altered Tremolite that adds a nice accent. These encrustations were usually removed by mechanical means but this is still intact and I think gives an nice touch to the crystal. Some typical contacting on the rear and one side, overall the condition is excellent with far better than usual luster.
