27 mm Diopside




Bumannsfjorden, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway

Size: 24x27x22 mm (25 gram)


A very big Diopside crystal with a smaller twin on the top. There are some damages, but it looks good. It also has a couple of tiny cola brown Grossular crystals.

Bumannsfjorden, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway

Most of the year the field where the minerals are found is covered with ice and snow, and today this area is now a part of the Seiland National Park, and collecting from this area is now strictly forbidden. So not only is this a rare material but also it will not be collected more of it.

This specimen was found in the late 1980's by my father, Gunnar Mathisen.
