Rep. of Congo

Cluster of CHUNKY green Dioptase crystals!! Individual crystals to 2cm, but they are not only long, they are also thick.  As with most Dioptase specimens, it's even better in person as they are notoriously difficult to capture with photographs.  Fine thumbnail sized specimen from the Dan Carlson collection.  An old label that comes withthe specimen indicates it was in the Nancy Collins collection prior to Dan.
