Afghanistan

print
Emerald Mining in Afghanistan is primarly restricted to three locations, only one of which has produced any signfigant quantity of gemstone quality material, and all located in roughly the north western portion of the country.

In the Konar providence exists the Badel Mine, near the town of Badel. To the west in Laghman Province is found both the Lamonda and Korgun mines. Farther west in the Panjshir Valley and spread over 150 square miles are three sets of mines (the Buzmal, Khenj, and Mikeni) that have produced Chromium rich materials up to 5 carats, and in very rare cases up to 15 carats.
