Dioptase has one of the most distinctive and alluring colors of any crystallized mineral species. Dioptase is known as one of the premier species from Tsumeb, and is a favorite among collectors world wide. This facetted gem is actually from Republic of Congo, not Tsumeb, and it is one of the few Dioptase stones I have seen from the locality at Kimbedi. Now this gem is not 100% gem quality, but it does pass light, and it has the classic electric emerald green color for which the species is known. This gem has a "Square Cushion" cut. I will say that the supply of Dioptase rough on the market is minimal at best, and even though this gem does have some inclusions, it is a very good size stone for any collector. This would be a superb opportunity to obtain a Dioptase gem to pair with one of your specimens for an incredible rough and cut set !
