Peridot from Sapat Gali, Kaghan Valley, Mansehra District, Pakistan [db_pics/pics/mk682a.jpg] Peridot from Sapat Gali, Kaghan Valley, Mansehra District, Pakistan [db_pics/pics/mk682b.jpg] Peridot from Sapat Gali, Kaghan Valley, Mansehra District, Pakistan [db_pics/pics/mk682c.jpg] Peridot from Sapat Gali, Kaghan Valley, Mansehra District, Pakistan [db_pics/pics/mk682d.jpg]

Single Peridot crystal with bright green color, good clarity, and sharp, smooth crystal faces. So many Peridot crystals tend towards an olive green color and rounded rather that crisp edges. This crystal is far better than most with good color and smooth, flat crystal faces. Complete all around and undamaged. There are also included acicular crystals of Ludwigite on the back side. A Peridot of rare quality which I have owned for 20 years or more.
