Afghanite is a relatively rare mineral that belongs to the group of silicate minerals known as feldspathoids. It was first discovered in 1968 in Afghanistan, from which it derives its name. It is also found in other locations around the world, including Russia, Italy, and the United States. Afghanite typically forms in igneous rocks, such as volcanic and plutonic rocks, as well as in some metamorphic rocks. It is usually found in association with other feldspathoid minerals, such as sodalite and haüyne. Afghanite is typically blue in color, although it can also be found in shades of white, grey, and green. It has a vitreous to greasy luster and a hardness of 5.5 to 6 on the Mohs scale. It is often found in well-formed crystals, which can be up to several centimeters in size.

The picture do not do these beauties Justice. I purchased F and it’s even more beautiful then I expected. The sparkle from the pyrite is great. Several deep rich blue colors. The white is more white then it looks in the photos. Mine had a lot of blue on the back side. Just buy what’s left you won’t regret it. Plus this is a rarity.

Outstanding Afghanite stone. Colors are vibrant and rich with bright flecks of Pyrite. Perfect flat oval, polished to perfect smoothness. This is the the finest of my many palm stones. I couldn't be more satisfied. Love this stone. Five stars all day long. JC
