This specimen consists of dozens of prismatic diopside crystals growing from a piece of matrix material. At least two of these crystals are double terminated; the largest crystal measures just under 1.0" (2.5cm) in length. These diopsides are highly translucent, and a beautiful shade of brown. There is minor damage around the edges of this specimen, and some abrasion damage to the crystals on one side.
