Afghanite mineral specimens

Afghanite is a blue mineral with a very similar appearance to Lazurite but can be distinguished by its crystal habit.

It is highly fluorescent, as are the numerous minerals that occur with it - it is best displayed under UV light.


Our current stock includes:

  • #1 - 70.5x61.5x42.5MM
    • A good collector's piece, with one crystal and several patches of Afghanite on a Calcite matrix. This specimen has several areas covered in a Mica, and many small Pyrite clusters. Under UV, the Afghanite glows a dark brown-orange, and the Mica reveals itself to be Phlogopite and fluoresces a brighter orange. An unknown mineral fluoresces white and is assumed to be Albite. This specimen comes from Badakhshan, Afghanistan.
