This colorful dioptase specimen from Kazakhstan is a rich emerald green. Many of the crystals, which are up to 8 mm, are complete, well-formed, and brightly lustrous, which gives the piece a nice sparkle. The crystals contrast nicely with the off-white calcite crystals that cover the matrix.  The intensity of the green color is especially notable.
