No references for Dioptase in Lubumbashi area... I would say Tantara but I can't be sure. I believe that the best to do is label it just as "Congo R.D."
I agree with Jordi that your dioptase from Congo is most likely from Tantara Mine.

Nice Italian classic, a pyrite from Elba was also one of MY latest collection additions ( http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/viewtopic.php?p=56436#56436 ) ;-)

Hello Philippe,

What a wonderful specimen. The Barite reminds me of a boutonnière.

Don
