Afghanistan Gemstones Buy gems by country of origin. Afghanistan is an important historical gemstone source located on the ancient Silk Road. The Khyber Pass connects Afghanistan to Pakistan, where Afghan gems have been traded for many years. Lapis lazuli has been mined from Badakhshan in Afghanistan from ancient times until the present day. Emeralds that rival the finest Colombian emeralds are mined from the Panjshir Valley. Nuristan Province produces some exceptional tourmaline, aquamarine, hiddenite, kunzite and morganite gems. Additionally, Jegdalek to the southeast of Kabul is a source for fine Afghan rubies, along with blue and pink sapphire. Other gems from Afghanistan include serpentine and turquoise.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
