A choice combination from Pakistan, this thumbnail features an excellent tabular Peridot perched beautifully on a highly modified Magnetite dodecahedron. The lustrous and partly gemmy Peridot is actually a chisel point crystal, and doubly terminated! The Magnetite has a metallic luster, and the faces have a texture that ranges from striated to rippled. Overall, a very good, and aesthetic, thumbnail.
