Diopside crystal
description: <p style="text-align: justify;">LOCALITY: Northern Areas, Pakistan <br /><br />2 1/4" tall <br /><br />This fine diopside crystal is distinguished by its pleasing color, high luster, high definition (especially around the termination) and clarity. Gem diopside crystals from Pakistan are uncommon. <br /><br />This specimen has not been the subject of spectral analysis to allow it to be differentiated from other rock forming mineral species.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">This piece was formerly in the collection of Marc P Weill.  It was traded from Robert Lavinsky during a visit to his Dallas gallery in 2010.  It was traded back to Robert Lavinsky when he visited me in Melbourne in July 2016. </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p> <p style="text-align: justify;">Photo by Matthew Webb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia    </p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> </p>
