For sale is a dioptase on quartz from Tsumeb mine, Tsumeb, Namibia. Featuring a large area of crystallized emerald green dioptase, on a solid quartz matrix. Dioptase crystals have always held a special place in the hearts of collectors, but more often than not the price is quite prohibitive, so they have been not available, here we have a decent sized specimen at a reasonable price. The cream colored material is a surface clay. We obtained this from Dallas Kemp after his recent (Nov, 2017) trip to Namibia.
