A cluster of deep green dioptase crystals, with areas of distinct hopper growth (r maybe natural etching?). Unusual for the species/locality; of the 187 dioptase photos for this locality hosted at Mindat, only one (that I can find) distinctly shows this strange 'corroded' morphology. Something different for the species!
