Diopside
Orford Nickel Mine, St-Denis-de-Brompton, Estrie
Quebec, Canada
4.3 x 1.3 x .9 CM (miniature)
price: $190
new year 2021

A terminated glassy crystal of Diopside with nice green color on the top. Transparent to translucent, this was in the Warren Johannson collection, a very nice example of a "Nickel" Diopside. There were some large and well-known pale brown crystals found at one time in this locality but very few such complete green crystals. A Canadian classic.
