- Darra-i-Pech, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan
A sharp, extremely lustrous crystal with unusually good gemminess, and high luster. It has a composite of two adjoined crystals, and thus has a little more geometry than most here. Slight, very slight damage at the junction of the two on the right, but this is not as obvious in person as in the photo where we intentionally spotlighted that part. Makes a fine, representative thumbnail! The tradeoff here is gemminess and luster for color.
