Item Description

Peridot is probably more commonly known to people as a faceted gem, as fine crystals are not terribly common on the market. I think it's safe to say that over the last 20+ years or so, the most productive locality for fine Peridot crystals is Sapat Gali in Pakistan. The best of these crystals certainly rank among the top examples of gem quality crystallized Peridot in the world. No world locality has produced the quality and quantity of euhedral Peridot crystals like Sapat Gali. This specimen is a nice thumbnail featuring a GEMMY, lime green color crystal of Peridot, fee of matrix. The crystal has some etching on the surface, but when it's backlit, you can see that it's nearly transparent inside. Good condition all around, no major damage that I can see. A cool example of these classic Peridot crystals.
