Opening this thread on gemstones. I personally collect stones as an enthusiast except for diamond. I prefer sapphire especially from Tanzania or Madagascar or emerald from Zambia or Ethiopia. I am interested in rubies but it is very hard to get them on our continent.

Any other collectors?

Your gonna lose your mind if you visit Peshawar.

Careful some shellfish are venomous
If @Imran Khan came in contact with it then the shellfish itself would get poisoned.

yes, i would love to be there. my geologist friend late father was across entire central asia - he was a big honcho geologist - i mean a real big shot who discovered the largest platinum mines here, also found the big gold reserves in Venezuela in early 90s. He said the same, there is so much gemstones in afghanistan coming to specifically Peshawar and he was pushing for commercial mining but there was just too much risk for his company to take.
