A handful of these dioptase epimorph specimens have appeared on the market in recent years, but this is one of the very best. The green dioptase forms a spherical cast around a mystery mineral which was once there. Nobody has determined definitively what that long-lost mineral is, but the most likely answer is Shattuckite. The fibrous, green matrix material is the Mottramite, and the orange coating is probably mimetite.
The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
