I can check but I think it's from Skardu District, Northern Areas..the thing about pakistani and afghan material is alot of the locations are not actual mines....the aquamarine for instance is found in multiple valleys along cliffs and where the rivers have cut through the rock in small to medium pegs scattered about sort of like antero pegs..there is not one single location all of them you see come from..they just use certain "area" names to tell where they are from..they would use the closest towns but some of the towns barely have names..juat like paprook.paprock afgahnaistan is not a mine but an area with multiple mines..
