Sar-e-Sang District, Koksha Valley
Badakshan, Afghanistan
2.6 x 2.4 x 2 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $600
Winter 2016-17

A deep, intense purple, very lustrous Scapolite crystal from Badakhshan Afghanistan. Tranparent to translucent and in very good condition this is a particularly choice small gem crystal. Classic habit for these rare crystals from Badakhshan, which are world class for the specie.
Afghanite
stock #8 AFG- 742
Sar-e-Sang District, Koksha Valley
Nuristan, Afghanistan
5 x 4 CM (miniature)
price: $165


A sharp, deep blue terminated Afghanite sits on the top of a calcite matrix (FL). The Afghanite crystal is 2 CM long and 1.6 CM wide, it is broken in the back but the presenting side is undamaged. There are two other broken crystal frangments in the matrix. A nice example and a well presented termination of this once uncommon mineral.
