# Algebraic Compact manifold originates from a proper scheme?

If $M$ is a compact complex manifold, which is the analytification of some scheme $X$ of finite type over $\operatorname{Spec}(\mathbb{C})$, then must $X$ be proper over $\operatorname{Spec}(\mathbb{C})$?

Do you know the characterization of proper as a correspondence between field extensions and specializations along a valuation ring? Apparently this will implies the answer yes. Note that your scheme will be a complete algebraic variety. –  user40276 May 31 '14 at 19:54
