Three chisel tip Peridot crystals in a line like mountain peaks. A choice older specimen with fine color and transparency. With any backlight this will really glow. Nearly all good cutting grade, there are virtually no inclusions to be seen. Some minor bruises can be seen but they are very minor, and the naturally frosted faces soften them even more. This is unusually well formed and sizable for a Sopat Peridot which are often very degraded or damaged. Far better in person, a very good value.
Classic habit, deep color and melted style surface on a small Gem Peridot. The condition is undamaged and a good value. The Sapat finds of Pakistan have provided many nice specimens, small ones like this are still quite affordable.

A big, hefty (46 grams) compound Peridot crystal with fine color and facet grade interior. Typical of crystals that reach this size there are several areas of edge wear and rounding of corners. The overall form is fairly good and this is an above average quality specimen from this area, vintage 1990's.
