Cabinet, 12.6 x 5.6 x 3.6 cm
This is a SIGNIFICANT kunzite gem crystal specimen. It just plain has it all. First off, it is incredibly gemmy - like glass through the interior of the upper part. It has sensational lilac color. It is in superb condition, with a perfect termination, complete all around, with NO DAMAGE and the only contact being around the bottom where it was removed. And, the luster is wonderful as well. Weighs a very impressive 400 grams!
