Spodumene (Var: Kunzite)
Darra-i-Pech (Pech; Peech; Darra-e-Pech) Pegmatite Field, Nangarhar (Ningarhar) Province, Afghanistan
Cabinet, 10.5 x 9.0 x 3.2 cm
The surface is rather rough, not all that impressive, but the color is just beyond belief; kunzites can be such a light shade of lilac that they are nearly colorless, or course. This whopper crystal is complete and doubly-terminated! Weighs an extremely impressive 606 grams!
