This is a superb specimen of dioptase from the D.R. Congo, featuring a multitude of gemmy crystals up to 8mm.  The color is just what you want in a diopside specimen – a rich, dark green with a slightly blue tint, and with its smooth faces, the luster is bright and showy. The crystals are very well formed with sharp edges and joins. No distracting damage; just a couple of very small areas with contacts.
