Dioptase crystals to 1cm with larger, translucent Calcite crytals to 1.5cm Some damage present but in overall good condition. Typical Tsumeb Dioptase/Calcite specimens have white, rhombic Calcite. This one is a little different with translucent to transparent scalenohedral Calcite crystals.

miniature - 4.5 x 3.2 x 2.7 cm

Bright and transparent Quartz crystal with inclusions of Brookite crystals. This is an excellent example with long Brookite crystals, some of which are fully included in the Quartz and others that partially extend out of the Quartz. The central Brookite extends from the base of the Quartz right up the middle to the very tip of the Quartz! The Quartz is also mostly recrystallized on the base. Great crystal!!
