Dioptase very large crystal
Kaokoveld Plateau
Kunene Region, Namibia
3.1 x 1.3 x 1.2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $530


A fine large single prism composed of two main parallel crystals that are joining in a single shared termination. Super lustrous with brilliant color, in fine overall condition. The base has a few tiny adhering crystals that are not complete and it is possible to see the break where this was removed from the host mass of Dioptase where this grew. Aside from the matrix the main large crystal is in perfect undamaged condition. From finds a few years ago in the Kaokoveld, large prisms like this were just not known from other locations. A choice example of this find
