30883: Dioptase and Plancheite
Kaokoveld Plateau, Kunene Region, Namibia
Miniature - 2.7 x 2.3 x 1.9 cm (1.1 x 0.9 x 0.7 inches)
8 grams (0.02 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

Central to this dioptase 'toenail' specimen is a 2 cm, opaque but lustrous dioptase crystal. This is surrounded by several additional complete and incomplete dioptase crystals in addition to some light blue plancheite for accent. Minor edgewear is noted under the hand lens, which is why this isn't a $100 specimen. Would display quite nicely, I think, permanently mounted on a base.
