We just received three shipments of beautiful minerals from the famous gem and mineral areas of NE Afghanistan and northern Pakistan. There aren’t a lot of pieces coming out of the mines this year, and we are continuing to buy quality pieces while they are available.
This piece has red garnets, one larger and several smaller on back side, on white Albite matrix.
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.
34 x 25 x 20 mm.
Measurements are as accurate as possible but due to the nature of some specimens may not be exact.
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).
