Dioptase
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Katanga Province, Democratic Republic of the Congo <br /><br />1" Across <br /><br />This piece is cheap. It is only worth around $2 at retail. Mineral specimens of this quality are only sold in "lucky dip" boxes or given away to young children at mineral shows. Thousands of little pieces of this quality are hawked all over the world in tourist shops and in types of traditional retail settings that cater to the inexpensive curio collector or novice metaphysical enthusiast. The main reason I present this piece in this album is to help "new" collectors understand the various price points and quality levels that mineral specimens are sold in. <br /><br />Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia</p>
