Great lot of bright vibrant apple green Peridot from Supatt, Pakistan. This is a sweet lot of mostly facet grade rough. Most stones in this lot should cut eye-clean to very slightly included with a little work; however, there are a few stones that are more on the slightly to moderately included end. We estimate that roughly 80%+ of this lot is medium to high grade facet rough. Please note that many of these stones do have some small inclusions and the white veiling common to Pakistani Peridot; however, I'm confident with a little hard work and some grinding you should be able to produce some spectacular gemstones.

Most of these pieces in this lot are uniform in color consisting of the Apple Green that Pakistan is known for without the olive overtones. There are some lovely stones in here and the lot is well worth the price! We have a limited amount of Peridot on hand and are really just wiping it out to make room for new rough shipments that are lined up for the year.

  1. Pakistani Peridot has climbed the charts to become known as the best and is for  Peridot what Kashmir is for Sapphire! There really is no other Peridot that compares with the Pakistani material as far as color and quality go on a consistent basis and as stones get larger there is no competition!

  2. The Pakistani Peridot mines are located at an altitude of roughly 15,000-16,000 feet and are roughly a 6 hour trek over several mountains on mule & foot (This is for a 1/2 way experienced climber and it will take considerably longer for a novice)! The Supatt area is known to have some of the world's most breathtaking sites and you can see some of these in our picture galleries.
