Dioptase is a very rare mineral, distinctive for its brightly green colour which varies from emerald green to bluish-green. If we look on its chemical structure, dioptase is a hydrous copper silicate. It forms tiny translucent crystals, which are mosty double terminated. Most famous sites are located in Kazachstan and Africa.

Special conditions/ treatment: Dioptase crystals are generally fragile and can easily break or crumble, and therefore care must be exercised when handling specimens.

Use: Our rough stones are a beautiful interior adornment – filling up a vase, fountain or a lamp with them creates an original design. In the exterior, they may be a perfect decoration of gardens. They are also suitable for mineralogist collections and exhibitions. Rough minerals may also be further processed, e.g. small crystals are ideal material for pendants.
