Gems?


Supposedly Afghanistan rocks are loaded with semi precious and precious gems; this picture shows the types of rock typically identified as having good potential for having something of value teased forth from within. Separating the small, dark deposits may yield emeralds, rubies, and possibly even gold. I'm no geologist and rocks with these characteristics are everywhere; this picture was taken on the way down from Hammerhead on 1/8. A'stan also has a substantial copper deposit and China is interested in mining this deposit.
