JC10559.  Epidote, albite.   Imilchil, Errachidia province, Drâa-Tafilalet Region, Morocco.  4 x 5 cm  53g.  $25.00    Sprigs of dark green, gemmy,  epidote, with bright luster, implanted on the feldspar matrix.  The cluster on the top edge was hard to photograph as the white matrix tended to make the epidote look too dark.

JC10528.   Epidote.  Tormiq valley, Haramosh mountains, Skardu district, Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan.  8 x 12 cm  273g.  $160.00.   These appear to be from the same find as two years ago, and also look like they are from the pocket wall, unlike the earlier specimens which occurred with albite? (some say adularia).   Hard to be certain.  The  Pakistani dealer I got these from was not terribly forthcoming as to the location and only said they are from a find last year or two...rather vague.   These are green sprays, with bright luster.   A few of them have the identical siliceous material on the terminations as the ones I got last year.    This pretty much ties them to the same occurrence.   There are some broken sprays on all the specimens I saw.  These are the best of the lot I saw at Tucson, and only the one dealer had them.   These are quite pretty, and display nicely.  From what appears to be a single pocket discovery.
