Classic habit, deep color and melted style surface on a small Gem Peridot. The condition is undamaged and a good value. The Sapat finds of Pakistan have provided many nice specimens, small ones like this are still quite affordable.

A big, hefty (46 grams) compound Peridot crystal with fine color and facet grade interior. Typical of crystals that reach this size there are several areas of edgewear and rounding of corners. The overall form is fairly good and this is an above average quality specimen from this area, vintage 1990's.
