The specimen was found in the classic location in the mountains of Bumansfjord, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway. It has a weight of 12 grams, and measures 26 x 16 x 16 mm .
The Diopside is green translucent, and has a great luster. It has only marks from the nature itself (no man made damages). At the bottom you will see some calcite grown into the crystal.
The last picture is taken with extra light.

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