Here is a specimen from the oldest nickel mine in Canada that operated for a short period in the 1860's. It is a rather large, well formed diopside crystal. The crystal is contacted on one side but the other three sides and the termination are largely complete. These are special crystals! Beautiful example of this silicate mineral. R
