Dark green crystals to almost 1" on this exceptional dioptase specimen line the inside of a vug in the matrix.  These are deep green, lustrous crystals of dioptase, with razor sharp edges and joins, and smooth faces that catch and reflect light in brilliant wet-look flashes.  This piece comes from a recent find at the old classic Tantara mine in the Congo. The crystals are almost entirely damage-free, except around the outside edges, and the specimen is really aesthetic and highly dramatic.
