Dioptase from Altyn-Tyube, Karagandy Oblast, Kazakhstan [db_pics/pics/dioptase1a.jpg]



DIOPTASE1 - Dioptase
$ 650.00 (=~ £ 524.91)
Altyn-Tyube, Karagandy Oblast, Kazakhstan
cabinet - 15 x 9 x 7 cm

This is a large dramatic example of Dioptase. It exhibits the best color from Kazakhstan, a rich emerald green. The dioptase from here is typically formed in seams within the host rock, and the crystals are commonly small, but intensely brilliant. 972 grams/ over 2 pounds. (I'm not quiting my day job to become a hand model, it just helps to know how large this piece is).
