A village and river valley located east of Nanga Parbat. (Previously part of Diamar district.)

In the mid 1990s some unusual blue and yellow-green elbaite specimens were marketed at major mineral shows as coming from "Astor, Pakistan". These specimens may actually be from near the village of Mir Malik, approximately 70 km south of Astor, not far from Azad Kashmir.

According to Thomas P. Moore (Moore`s Compendium of Mineral Discoveries (2016) Vol 1 p. 8) Raman spectroscopy at the Univ. of Arizona in 2008 showed the alleged crystals of "Clinoenstatite" to be Actinolite which fits with the observed crystal morphology and cleavages.
