|Diamond (2.31 carat skeletal crystal)
|Mbuji-Mayi (Miba), 300 km east of Tshikapa, Democratic Republic of the Congo
|Unusual skeletal crystal of colorless, gem-grade diamond. The skeletal shape has complex, depressed faces with raised octahedral edges. Hard to photograph - must be seen in person. The only skeletal crystal I have ever seen available to collectors.
