A very nice large plate of lustrous, vibrant blue-green Dioptase crystals from the Altyn-Tyube deposit in Kazakhstan. Good dioptase crystals are actually rarer from this locale (also the type locale for the species!) than from say Tsumeb or the Kaokoveld Plateau, and this is a fine example accented by a nicely-placed single calcite crystal. A great flashy dioptase specimen for the price, from a classic locale.
