Spodumene (Var: Kunzite)
Urucum mine (Tim mine; Corrego do Urucum pegmatite), Galileia, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 1.5 x 0.8 cm
This is a naturally etched crystal of GEM kunzite not from Afghanistan, but from the Urucum Mine in Brazil - and is therefore a lot more hard-to-obtain and desirable! It's a complete and terminated floater, with the typical jagged form. Weighs 17 grams, so not just a shard but has thickness to it.
