Spodumene Var. Kunzite
Nuristan, Laghman Province, Afghanistan
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 2.3 x 1.8 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda
Attractive, doubly-terminated single crystal of intensely colored Kunzite from Afghanistan: The crystal is completely GEMMY, and it has classic striated, silky faces, save for one which is perfectly clear. That is the window into the gemmy interior of the crystal. Between the color, sharp terminations, and the fact that it is a floater (complete all around and terminated on all sides), this is one of the better examples in its size range.
