Ex. Ed Ruggiero
A very GEMMY and LUSTROUS, pristine, doubly terminated, pastel-pink kunzite crsytal from Nuristan, Afghanistan. The C-axis end photos really show the vivid pink coloration of this spodumene. Ex Ed Ruggiero Collection, who purchased this piece in 1976 at the Tucson Show. Material from Afghanistan and Pakistan was just beginning to trickle out then. 6.1 x 4.4 x 2.0 cm
