I could not find any information on Zoisite from Afghanistan on Mindat. I was able to find one purple specimen of Zoisite from Laghman Province and two green-gray (or slightly pink looking from another direction) specimens from Nangahar Province on a Google search. I do not have all the old labels for this specimen and the only information I have is that it is "Tanzanite from Afghanistan."

One of my favorite specimens of beryl. ( I hope I stated that correctly). This specimen comes from a special mine and in my opinion from a very special miner.

I appreciate your kind comments, Pierre.

I really like your fluorite with hematite phantoms.

Hi Don, is this specimen 1-IMG_0738.JPG not perhaps Shattuckite? It looks very similar to specimens from Kaokoland (Namibia). Both are very nice.

Hello Pierre,

I believe that you are correct. I have another specimen of Shattuckite that looks very similar. I plan to post the other one soon. I will write one of the site administrators and ask him to make the necessary correction.

Thank you for your assistance.

Sincerely,

Don

I believe all three are Shattuckite and from Kaokoveld Mine. I already corrected them.
