This specimen has a nice color contrast between the blue/green colored Dioptase crystals and the orange tinted yellow Wulfenite crystals. The majority of the specimen is composed of Wulfenite and is rather heavy for its size. Some of the Wulfenite crystals have a pyramidal habit. In other places, the Wulfenite etched and has an off-white color. The Wulfenite crystals have a good glossy luster. It appears as if the Dioptase crystals are partially pseudomorphed/altered. Also present are small patches of a crust of olive green colored micro crystals of Mottramite. There are also present a couple of crudely formed, light gray colored Cerussite crystals.

Condition: Good

Flaws: Most of the Dioptase crystals are incomplete. The Wulfenite crystals are in very good condition.
