A large piece of matrix with light-blue Shattuckite hosting some large, lustrous, translucent, sharp, deep-green Dioptase crystals lining a shallow vug. The large, focal Dioptase crystals is nearly 2 cm in size. There is also a light Dioptase druse on a portion of the matrix. The contrast with the matrix is eye-catching, not only in color and luster, but in lustrous, uniform colored, complete crystals on rough, etched, multicolored matrix. A beautiful piece in excellent condition.
