Konar (Kunar; Konarh; Konarha; Nuristan) Province, Afghanistan
Cabinet, 9.5 x 1.8 x 1.8 cm
Rarely is Spodumene seen in twinned crystals, but they do exist. This specimen is a very good example of a twinned Spodumene with a distinct twinning plane visible through the length of the crystal. The crystal is quite gemmy and has a very attractive and uncommon greenish-yellow color. There is a contact on the termination, but the crystal is rather sharp, and the prism has excellent luster. A very nice twinned gem crystal from what is probably the premier locality for Spodumene in the world. 9.5 x 1.8 x 1.8 cm
