A bunch of sharp, gemmy dioptase crystals form a nice ridge-like grouping on this specimen. They are very sharply formed, and are colored a saturated shade of very dark green with a hint of blue that is reminiscent of fine emeralds. Light glints off the lustrous crystal faces, giving the piece a nice flashy quality. The largest crystals, which are double terminated, are over 3/4", which is large for the species.  None of the dioptase crystals are damaged.  The dark green dioptase stands out very well in contrast to the baby blue chrysocolla which dusts the matrix.
