#08 / EPIDOTE - Pakistan
Locality: Raywoo Mine, Quetta, Balochistan, Pakistan
Size: 7 x 6.5 x 4.5 cm.
A large, blocky, dark green Epidote crystal with other crystals on the front and rear faces as shown. The six edge faces form the hexagonal cross section. This is a floater crystal, and may be slightly magnetic, as many of these have microscopic magnetite on the exterior . This is an unusually good example from this unusual find.
