Forsterite (Peridot)
stock #21.1-296
Sapat Gall, Naran KaghanValley, Mansehra District
Kyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan
4.3 x 3.3 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $1450
Late Summer 2021

Deep green glassy gem crystals of Forsterite in a well-composed cluster with no matrix. This is in excellent condition, a hefty 57 grams and looks fine from every side. The only broken spot is on the bottom where this was removed, this is a 360 degree display piece. Especially esthetic, this specimen has the desirable architecture sought in a fine Peridot. The crystal faces have complex striations and etching with slightly rounded edges as is typical from this locale. Sapat Gali is famed as perhaps the very best locality today for Peridot, this is a true modern classic.

Peridot (var. Forsterite) gem crystals
stock #17.1-205
Sapat Gall, Naran KaghanValley, Mansehra District
Kyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan
3.9 x 3.5 x 2.4 CM (miniature)
price: $750
Spring 2019

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.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan
1.7 x 1.3 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $90


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.
