Spodumene (Var: Kunzite)
Darra-i-Pech (Pech; Peech; Darra-e-Pech) Pegmatite Field, Nangarhar (Ningarhar) Province, Afghanistan
Cabinet, 13.8 x 3.1 x 1.1 cm
A large, complete and doubly-terminated crystal of kunzite from Afghanistan, of impressive size and fine lilac color! This crystal weighs 128 grams, and as you can see, has impressive height and "presence" when displayed vertically. Viewed from the side you can see the extreme gemminess of its interior. The bottom termination appears to be healed following a natural break.
