Spodumene (Var: Kunzite)
Galileia, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 4.2 x 0.9 x 0.9 cm
A gem crystal of kunzite not from Afghanistan but from BRAZIL, with a distinctively different square form. Definitely terminated on one end and probably both, though because of the way these terminations are naturally jagged it is really difficult to tell. very transparent and gemmy, with good lilac color. Weighs 10 grams.
