Here is a very colorful dioptase specimen from Kazakhstan that is a rich emerald green. Many of the crystals, which are up to 5 mm, are complete, well-formed, and brightly lustrous, which gives the piece a nice sparkle. The crystals contrast nicely with the off-white matrix.  There are a few damaged crystals around the edges, but with the intensity of the green color they do not distract very much.
