Diopside from Bumansfjorden, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway
Size: 45x20x18 mm (32,6 gr.)
Here is a single giant diopside crystal. It got some damages, bot in the top and bottom, but all damage done by nature (not man made).
The crystal is translucent deep green.

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.
