I have just received a wonderful flat of small miniature specimens from the Marki Khel in the Khogyani District of Afghanistan. These beautiful specimens have come directly from the mine and display a brilliant combination of magnetite, epidote, diopside, andradite and clinochlore crystals.
The magnetite crystals in particular are really special, displaying beautiful complex crystal faces with fantastic lustre and occasionally beautiful iridescence.
All in all the specimens would make a very attractive addition to any mineral collection, especially as they come from such an unusual and dramatic locality.
Keep an eye on my listings as I release the lovely new specimens for sale!
