Forsterite Var. Peridot
Nara Kagan Valley, Pakistan
Miniature, 3.2 x 1.8 x 0.8 cm
Ex. Ernest Schlichter
While not totally transparent, this is nearly so - this lime-green, gemmy, well terminated, luscious green peridot is very representative of good Pakistani material that has redefined what a collector could get for this species. It even has a few "side cars" to give it a cityscape appearance and a bit of elegance apart from the single look.
