Dioptase
stock #8.1-295
Tantara Mine, Shinkolobwe, Central Area
Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
8.9 x 7 CM (cabinet)
price: $1250


An incredibly attractive mineral! Brilliant and lustrous crystals to 1.5CM with top color are packed in a vug that is rimmed with Dioptase and some blue Shattuckite. No damage to the display area and main crystals but there are a few tiny contacts at the outer edge of the piece that are not easilly seen. Really a killer for form and with bright, wet looking luster, this is a great value for the price. I have not seen anything of this quality in any recent lots from the DRC.
