While traditionally the Tsumeb mine is thought to have produced the world's best dioptase crystals, recent finds from the Kaokoveld Plateau in central Namibia are rivaling classic Tsumeb specimens in terms of crystal size, quality and color. This large plate of vibrant blue-green crystals has exceptional color and large crystals (up to almost 2 cm!). For the Kaokoveld, this is a major dioptase specimen and would compliment any collector's display case. It comes with a custom Sunnywood base for display.
