A gemmy, lustrous and highly striated lavender/pink kunzite crystal from the less well-known Anita Mine of San Diego County. This essentially pristine beauty has excellent transparency and is very glassy. One side is striated and the other side is glass. The C-axis photo highlights the super lavender color saturation. Ex. George Elling Collection. 30 grams.
