:? is "swat" a location? mine name? i've heard of crab tree before, but not swat, ammydude! anyway, i'm not surprised of what you may find in your mineral collection, but, i must say, nice discovery!! :wink: lol, looks like you have so many specimens, that you may be having quite a time keeping up with where they came from. 8) kinda like ubergod and the gems he keeps hidden under his mattress. :lol:

Swat is a Kashmir lookalike region in Pakistan , it has several emerald mines which are presently mostly out of production due to taliban push in the region and the resultant successful military operation. The fighting has moved away from this place but has left ugly scars on a beautiful face.

Hopefully coming summer shall see renewed mining activity .
