This is an excellent combo specimen and a superb andradite. Sharp, glossy, dodecahedral crystals of andradite up to 1.4cm across are sitting on a bed of dark green biotite crystals. Light green, gemmy epidote crystals are present and a cluster of green, gemmy diopside crystals is lying down on the biotite. A fantastic and high-quality specimen from this skarn zone in Afghanistan.
