Excellent parallel crystal tree-like formation of Epidote from the well regarded mineral area of the Alchuri, Shigar Valley, Pakistan, probably from the Alpine Vein Area. The specimen displays upwardly branching crystals of gemmy Epidote, with a pleasing brown-olive green colouration. Areas of grey-green acicular crystal areas of actinolite can be seen on the Epidote, along with sparsely scattered small crystals of white Adularia.
