Spodumene (Var: Kunzite)
Darra-i-Pech (Pech; Peech; Darra-e-Pech) Pegmatite Field, Nangarhar (Ningarhar) Province, Afghanistan
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 1.8 x 1.5 cm
This is a very well formed Kunzite crystal with very sharp, glassy faces, superb form, and an attractive soft pinky-yellow color. It is strongly pleochroic as you can see when viewed down the "c" axis. The crystal is about 85% gem quality and has a great non-etched termination. A wonderful example of a nearly textbook quality Kunzite crystal. 6.2 x 1.8 x 1.5cm
