Diopside in Calcite from Bumannsfjorden, Seiland, Finnmark, Norway
Size: 82x83x58 mm (524 gr.)
This specimen has a great luster, especially on the Diopside crystals at the top. There is a 45 mm cluster of Diopside. The Diopside in the bottom of the cluster is damaged. There are some white spots on the Diopside on the top of the cluster, and if you look in a magnifying glass you will see that this is not damages (seen on the last picture).
Much of the other Diopside is damaged. There are a lot of tiny Grossular crystals. If you use light and magnifying glass you will see that the Grossular crystals are translucent and very nice (undamaged).
The stone is not cut, but stands perfectly by itself.
