Comment: Beautiful monoclinic crystals of the Pyroxene Diopside on a solid Amphibole matrix of Actinolite and pyrite? Sri Lanka gem cutters make wonderful cats eyes and star gems from the diopside and enstatite stones that they get from their gem fields. I wonder if this deposit of Diopside will produce gemstones in the future.
