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.
