Pakistani Microlite on Ebay

Ebay" rel="nofollow">>Ebay Microlite

Spotted this specimen on Ebay listed as Microlite. Was wondering anyone else's opinion about it. I have never seen Microlite with this iridescence and so metallic looking.

I'm pretty sure that's magnetite, and it's also probably from Afghanistan. The matrix looks a lot like the stuff from Marki Khel, Nangarhar Prov. (clinochlore, possibly with a chrome diopside)

Most probably Magnetite, with Diopside and Clinochlore.

Thank you for help guys. I thought it looked a little suspicious.
