Here is a huge and very nice green translucent cluster of Diopside crystals.
It is damage free in the front, with many nice and clean facets. You will find some damages on the underside (best seen on the video).
Please watch the video for a better view:
This specimen was found in the late 1980's by my father, Gunnar Mathisen.
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.
