Neat specimen Nauroz, but I highly doubt anyone will be able to give you an exact location for it. I'm thinking the best anyone can do is a particular region of Pakistan such as a mountain range like Vik suggested....

Nauroz, I feel weird trying to help to Pakistani man to locate a Pakistani specimen! Anyway, I will try:
Almost sure: Skardu District
Very probably: Haramosh Mountains
Probably: Shengus (please see: )

Thanks folks for helping me out.

@CaptPaul That's why it goes into my personal collection, thanks for appreciating the specimen, see you on mindat chat.

@Jose Zendrera I am digging in Balochistan which is on the other corner where Skardu is located. smiling smiley
