"Andradite & Diopside""Andradite & Diopside""Andradite & Diopside""Andradite & Diopside""Andradite & Diopside"

Marki Khel, Spin Ghar range (Speen Ghar range), Khogyani District, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan - For some time, we were told that these Andradites were coming out of Pakistan, but several individuals have confirmed that they are indeed from the Nangarhar Province in Afghanistan. Despite the fact that this province is incredibly well-known for its pegmatite minerals  (Tourmaline, Spodumene, etc.), these specimens are actually from a metamorphic skarn deposit. These are some of the recognizable Garnets around, and the beautiful contrasting colors of the various associated species make for some eye-catching  specimens. This piece hosts a sharp, lustrous, rich reddish-brown, well-formed dodecahedra of Andradite which are associated with small gemmy, lustrous, blue-green  color Diopside and yellow-green colored crystals of Epidote on matrix. The largest Andradite measures 6 mm across, and most of them are damage free. An attractive little association specimen from this interesting occurence in Afghanistan.  Overall size is 4.5X3X1.5 cm. Ex Rob Lavinsky collection, original label
