RM387   Epidote with magnetite inclusions

Raskoh Mts., Kharan, Balochistan, Pakistan

A very brilliant group of epidote crystals with an intense and deep green color. It shows a very rare habit for the species. We can observe a flattened shape generated by a extremely developed frontal pinacoid. Some small epidote crystals have grown in one face. Excellent luster. To increase its scientific interest we must say that it is magnetic due to magnetite inclusions.


Size: 7,3 x 5,7 x 2,8 cm.
Found in 2011

Magnetic properties: It is attracted by magnets
