Fine combination of Peridot and Magnetite from Pakistan. The mint-green Peridot crystals are translucent to gemmy with good luster. They range from euhedral to subhedral, with the largest Peridot being 2.2 cm. They are intergrown with modified dodecahedrons of Magnetite. The exposed edges are sharp and the faces have a beautiful, striated metallic luster.
