Diopside.
RP59V0: Diopside
Very sharp crystal with neat faces and edges, translucent, and with a very deep and uniform green color. Surely one of the first (near 1980) Afghan diopsides to arrive in Europe.
Nuristan  Afghanistan (±1980)
Specimen size: 2.4 × 1.5 × 0.9 cm = 0.9” × 0.6” × 0.4”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside.
RQ59M0: Diopside
Excellent miniature. This Diopside crystal has very sharp faces and edges, also an excellent deep color and brilliance.
The handwritten Folch label indicates that it was self-collected by Mr. Folch in 1980 and we can be sure that it was one of the first Diopside specimens from this locality to come to Europe.
Nuristan  Afghanistan (±1980)
Specimen size: 2.9 × 1.3 × 0.8 cm = 1.1” × 0.5” × 0.3”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside.
RR8P8: Diopside
Probably this is one of the first Diopside crystals from Afghanistan to arrive in Europe, due to the fact that it was obtained at the locality by Alberto Folch in 1980, as the original label says. The single crystal has very well defined faces and edges, a very deep and uniform green color and it is rather transparent.
Nuristan  Afghanistan (±1980)
Specimen size: 2.9 × 0.7 × 0.6 cm = 1.1” × 0.3” × 0.2”

Price: [SOLD]

Parallel growths, with a very pronounced curvature, of crystals showing very well defined faces and edges and perfect terminations.

Diopside with Vesuvianite.
MM88G7: Diopside with Vesuvianite
The specimen is from a recent find by local searchers at the Jeffrey Quarry, now closed. Even considering that the cavity was very big very few pieces have such high quality. The tabular habit of the crystals is very uncommon, the fine vertical striations and the presence of the pinacoid demonstrate they are very flat prisms. Their color and brightness are excellent and the transparency exceptional. Even more, their association with minor violet Vesuvianite adds more interest and glamour to the sample.
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Estrie, Québec  Canada (09/2005)
Specimen size: 3.5 × 3 × 2.5 cm = 1.4” × 1.2” × 1.0”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside with Grossular (Hessonite).
EJ89R3: Diopside with Grossular (Hessonite)
Group of Diopside crystals, one of them clearly dominant, of good size and color. The contrast with the matrix, partially coated by nice Grossular crystals, increases its beauty. A great Italian classic.
Laietto, Condove, Val di Susa, Piemonte  Italy
Specimen size: 5.2 × 3.9 × 3.9 cm = 2.0” × 1.5” × 1.5”

Main crystal size: 2.2 × 0.7 cm = 0.9” × 0.3”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside.
MA89E9: Diopside
Doubly-terminated crystals of Diopside are not that common. In this case they occur in a large group of quite long subparallel crystals. The color, transparency and position on the matrix are also striking.
Kunar Valley, Nuristan  Afghanistan (2004)
Specimen size: 8 × 5.3 × 3.5 cm = 3.1” × 2.1” × 1.4”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside (Chromium rich).
TB91: Diopside (Chromium rich)
A doubly terminated (although the terminations are not that sharp) powerful Diopside chromium rich. Great color and luster, a floater and complete on all sides.
Haramosh Mountains, Skardu, Baltistan  Pakistan (02/2001)
Specimen size: 6.8 × 2 cm = 2.7” × 0.8”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside with Vesuvianite.
MF16G7: Diopside with Vesuvianite
The specimen is from a recent find by local searchers at the Jeffrey Quarry, now closed. Even considering that the cavity was very big very few pieces have such high quality. The tabular habit of the crystals is very uncommon, the fine vertical striations and the presence of the pinacoid demonstrate they are very flat prisms. Their color and brightness are excellent and the transparency exceptional. Even more, their association with good quality Vesuvianite of different color, green and violet adds more interest and glamour to the sample.
Jeffrey Mine, Asbestos, Estrie, Québec  Canada (09/2005)
Specimen size: 12.7 × 6 × 5.5 cm = 5.0” × 2.4” × 2.2”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside with Vesuvianite.
MA16H8: Diopside with Vesuvianite
The sample has great quality. It is very esthetic because the Diopside crystals are more aerial and distinguishable than usual at this find. Perfectly defined, transparent and bright, they are placed on a base of prismatic crystals of Vesuvianite sharing yellow and violet colors.
Jeffrey Mine, ↓200 m., Asbestos, Estrie, Québec  Canada (09/2005)
Specimen size: 9.2 × 6.5 × 5.2 cm = 3.6” × 2.6” × 2.0”

Main crystal size: 1 × 0.7 cm = 0.4” × 0.3”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside with Titanite and Graphite.
TH26S3: Diopside with Titanite and Graphite
A novelty at Tucson 2010. With the exceptional Tanzanite with Prehnite also appeared from Merelani some crystals of Diopside of notable size. This one has an excellent development of the upper terminal faces. It is transparent with an intense color and has an associated curious dark Titanite crystal that we analyzed. It also has small crystals of graphite on the back side.
Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha  Tanzania (2010)
Specimen size: 4.4 × 2.5 × 1.7 cm = 1.7” × 1.0” × 0.7”

Price: [SOLD]
Diopside with Vesuvianite.
MJ87G9: Diopside with Vesuvianite
The sample, exceptional, is from a recent find in the now closed Jeffrey Quarry. The pocket, being big, produced very few specimens of such high quality. Diopside crystals have an uncommon habit: they are apparently tabular, but fine vertical striations and the presence of the pinacoid show they really are very flat prisms. The color and luster are excellent and the transparency extraordinary. If all this seems not enough, their association with prismatic greenish-yellow and violet Vesuvianite crystals adds even more interest and visual appeal to the sample.
Jeffrey Mine, ↓200 m., Asbestos, Estrie, Québec  Canada (09/2005)
Specimen size: 12 × 7 × 5.5 cm = 4.7” × 2.8” × 2.2”
