Fascinating Shot. Looks like a large rock formation, but I'm guessing this is extreme closeup?

Yeah the crystal is dioptase and it is only about an inch long. I used a macro lens and got as close as I could.

This stone has always been one of my favorite. Classically emeralds were always the best stone imo but dioptase is gorgeous too.

Thanks Hanneke.
