- Darra-i-Pech (Pech; Peech; Darra-e-Pech) Pegmatite Field, Nangarhar (Ningarhar) Province, Afghanistan
A new find of intensely purple scapolite from this remote part of Afghanistan. The crystals range from transparent (rarely) to translucent, and are intensely purple. This is a gemmy, lustrous miniature crystal. Much more gemmy and bright, in person, in fact.
