English: Dioptase, Cerussite
Locality: Christoff Mine, Kaokoveld Plateau, Kunene Region, Namibia (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: 3.8 x 3.2 x 1.7 cm.
A 1.6-cm-long dioptase, fairly translucent, is perched on a reticulated cerussite here. A unique combination, and the only one like it I have seen amidst a small trickle of specimens from this new mine in the Kaokoveld plateau. Although not quite pristine on very close examination, it looks pristine from arms length, and anyways it is the contrast of color and geometry that so mesmerizes, here. It is, amongst so many Kaokoveld dioptase that have no associations at all with them, really surprising to me to see this one. Ex. Charlie Key.
