Sannan Skarn Donut~RARE MATERIAL
A new deposit of complex fine-grained rocks was found in Western Pakistan. The material is characterized by its more or less green color, due to chrome, and resembles Maw Sit Sit.
The mineralogical components vary strongly in short distances and the minerals identified (hydrogrossular, diopside, aegirine, winchite, pectolite, chlorite, natrolite, sodalite, etc.) are not well known to gemologists.
A common term to name the material is skarn, as it describes a rock formed by a metasomatic replacement of a parent rock commonly a calc-silicate rock, transformed in a contact or metamorphic process. “Sannan" is a specific modifier that specifically describes the skarn from the new occurrence. The opaque material is suitable for cabochons, spheres, carvings, and other jewelry items.
