Pakistan Epidote – June 2020
Posted by: Raymond McDougall on 06.06.2020 | Filed under: Latest, Recent Mineral Updates

I’ve posted a small group of specimens in this new Pakistan Update (click here). These are fans of sharp, lustrous epidote crystals, some of which are associated with quartz crystals. The fans of crystals are topped by curved, joined terminations – quite hard to photograph (hard to get a reflection with a flat reflector), but I hope you can make them out!
