CLINOHUMITE is a very rare mineral that is only found as fine crystals in a few places in the world. Typically, the mineral has an orange color, but a few years ago, some very impressive burgundy red clinohumites were found in Afghanistan in the famous area where the Lapis Lazuli is mined. This specimen comes from Jikhan, Kokcha Valley, Badakshan, Afghanistan. We found this unique piece at the Tucson Gem, Rock & Mineral Show, in the room of a Pakistani wholesale mineral dealer.
