This piece has light reddish orange spessartine garnets on snow-white albite mother-rock. Some quartz and minor black tourmaline fragments also present.
It is from the area’s famous gemstone-bearing granite pegmatites, near Skardu in the Shigar Valley of Gilgit-Baltistan in northern Pakistan.
In this region, much of the mining is done in thousands of small hand-worked digs.

Yes, we are happy to combine shipping for multiple pieces. Our pieces have different weights, however, and that makes it a bit challenging to combine shipping as you are ordering, but you will only pay the actual combined shipping cost plus a $1.00 handling & material fee. We will refund any overages as soon as we create the shipping label (thst's the point when we know the actual price for shipping).
