Ex. Chris Korpi
This MATRIX GEM KUNZITE crystal has excellent form and is simply a miracle for a San Diego kunzite. It is actually a floater, perched in matrix! It has rich Pala-quality color down the c-axis but the most amazing feature is its windowpane clarity and gemminess. The Anita Mine is a small modern reworking into the classic old lodes, but produced very few specimens of this magnitude. This particular piece should be considered an important crystal due to its size and quality while in matrix.
