Forsterite Var. Peridot
Sapat Gali, Kaghan Valley, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan
Thumbnail, 2.5 x 1.9 x 1.8 cm

This is an unusually sharp Peridot crystal, with glowing lime green color, nice form, and excellent gemminess. It is sharper than many Peridot crystals, as for some reason they tend to get "curvy" with size, from this locale. Nevertheless, they are amazing gems. Pristine and complete all around, only contacted along the base where it was removed. A very good, aesthetic thumbnail.
