This is a classic example of what have become some of the finest Peridot crystals in the world. No world locality has produced the quality and quantity of euhedral Peridot crystals like Soppat. This specimen is a very attractive, relatively sharp, gemmy, lime green color crystal that is complete on all sides and is very well formed. A beauty of a thumbnail of this great material.
