A large piece of matrix with a shallow vug hosting a primary layer of white/clear Calcite rhombohedrons with a secondary layer of lustrous, emerald-green Dioptase crystals. A very aesthetic combination and great contrast not only between the white and green colors, but between the luster of the Calcite and Dioptase crystals and the “dull” luster and color of the matrix. Great piece, in excellent condition.
