Spodumene Var. Kunzite
Darra-i-Pech, Laghman Province, Afghanistan
Cabinet, 10.8 x 5.3 x 2.9 cm (273 grams)
A brilliantly pink, almost purple crystal with the best color you can get for the locality in this hue. It has great clarity, gemminess, and luster. It GLOWS on the long axis when lit from below or above, with the BEST lilac-pink color you could ask for in a kunzite (right-uppre photo, lit from below). It is also a doubly-terminated floater, complete all around! No damage, and excellent display appeal, at a fair price for the quality, in my opinion. IF YOU EVER WANTED A REALLY GOOD AFGHANI kunzite, in this price range, I cannot imagine better...
