On this specimen from Kazakhstan, the dioptase is a vivid emerald green which is complimented by the showy display of bright sparkling crystals. The dioptase has grown on an off-white calcite matrix which makes a nice contrast.  The dioptase crystals, which grew inside a protective vug on the surface, are mostly damage free, and have small, clear calcite crystals alongside the dioptase.
