Darra-i-Pech (Pech; Peech; Darra-e-Pech) Pegmatite Field, Nangarhar (Ningarhar) Province, Afghanistan
Cabinet, 11.4 x 2.9 x 1.2 cm
A very gemmy jagged and sculptural crystal of kunzite, with fine lilac color and highly lustrous faces. It has the usual naturally rough terminations, complete except for a couple of the little sub-peaks. Sizeable and dramatic in form, in addition to superb gemminess. Ex. Wayne Thompson Collection.
