Spodumene var. Kunzite (DT)
Laghman Province (Nuristan), Afghanistan
Toenail, 3.1 x 1.6 x 1.3 cm
Ex. James (Jim) Houran; Allan Young

A dramatic Kunzite crystal that is DOUBLY-TERMINATED, highlighted by these unusually fine, sharp, and different terminations. The faces are striated, with the luster varying from silky to splendent, and the color is a nice, medium pink. Luckily, there is an attached Quartz crystal from the pegmatite pocket that adds a welcome accent and noticeable difference from all the singles out there. An excellent, aesthetic toenail of a species very hard to find in this size range!
