Kunzite With Tourmaline
Pech, Kunar Province, Nuristan, Afghanistan
Large Cabinet, 21.7 x 7.5 x 2.7 cm
Talk about color! This lilac kunzite has DEEP PURPLE COLOR: NOT PINK, but a true PURPLE. It is particularly intense on the long and shortest axes. I think the pics speak for themselves, here! The kunzite is also doubly-terminated, complete on the bottom as well. I will make a base so it can display nicely without having to be glued down. Tourmaline in association with kunzite is extremely uncommon and I have never seen a piece with quite the aesthetics of this one, with a beautiful 6.5-cm tourmaline hitching a ride. Oh...it IS GEMMIER and more TRANSPARENT In PERSON!
