Albite
Formula: Na(AlSi3O8)
Reference: no reference
Albite var: Cleavelandite
Formula: Na(AlSi3O8)
Reference: no reference
'Apatite'
Formula: Ca5(PO4)3(Cl/F/OH)
Reference: Specimen seen and bought by Aymeric Longi in Peshawar
Beryl
Formula: Be3Al2(Si6O18)
Habit: Lots of clusters, mostly flat terminations
Colour: blue, milky to very deep
Description: From a recent find. separate cristals are often usually very gemmy (oterhwise rather milky)and of great color, but very often with the tips included with thin needle-like material (parallel to axis c), of a darker blue color than the main body. Large piece appear milky when viewed from side, but transparent viewed from above. Can be associated with cleavelandite, muscovite and pink apatite.
