This is a superb, flashy specimen of dioptase from the D.R.Congo, featuring extremely sharp and flashy pseudo-cubic crystals to .5".  The color is just what you want in a diopside specimen – a rich, dark green with a slightly blue tint, and crystals with smooth faces which give it a highly desitable shiny luster. The crystals are all very well formed with razor sharp edges and joins.
