Small Cabinet, 8.9 x 6.3 x 5.0 cm
Badakhshan (Badakshan; Badahsan) Province, Afghanistan
A stunningly rich specimen of GEM PURPLE SCAPOLITE crystals from the amazing find in Afghanistan. Most of these you have seen have probably been single crystals, and not on matrix. There are dozens of crystals here, and many fine ones are grouped together in one area. They are absolutely pristine, lustrous and terminated gem crystals. The matrix has been sawn on the bottom to remove the specimen. The crystals measure to one centimeter in length.
