Lovely cabinet-size specimen of deep blue-green dioptase crystals with good luster on calcite/quartz matrix from the Altyn-Tyube deposit, Kirghiz Steppes, Karagandy Province, Kazakhstan. Altyn-Tyube is actually the type locality for dioptase, and good specimens are harder to get from this locale than Tsumeb or Kaokoveld Plateau dioptase from Namibia. This is a very nice large showy example.
