Dioptase.

Please note that although the original labels state that the locality is "near Gouloukoutou River", we have labeled it as Tantara because we believe that this is the right locality.
The sample is with two old labels, of Burminco (George Burnham) and from D.E. Boydston collection.

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.
