Spodumene (Var: Kunzite)
Paprok, Nuristan Province (Nurestan; Nooristan), Afghanistan
Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 2.4 x 2.2 cm
Just a terrific kunzite crystal, for color, form, and condition. It is DOUBLY-TERMINATED, with a wonderful sharp chisel termination on top. It is EXTREMELY gemmy all the way through the center. Two of the faces have pretty striations, one is frosty, and one is GLASSY! Impressive size and weight for a fine crystal, at 106 grams.
