Diopside in Calcite
Location: Bumannsfjorden, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway
Size: 34x58x30 (82,4 gr.)
Very nice green translucent Diopside on milky white calcite from the mountains of Bumannsfjorden. The specimen is mostly undamaged.
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.
