Spodumene (Var: Kunzite)
Laghman (Lagman; Nuristan) Province, Afghanistan
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 2.8 x 1.6 cm
A gorgeous, unblemished cluster of doubly terminated, gemmy and lustrous, well-striated, lavender, kunzite crystals from recent Afghanistan finds. This is superb for its size, with the large crystal beautifully complimented by the two smaller ones. As usual for good kunzites, the C-axis shots give vivid, lavender color.
