Spodumene var. Kunzite
Laghman, Afghanistan
Small Cabinet, 7.8 x 1.9 x 1.9 cm
Ex. Herb Obodda

Gorgeous, hot pink, over three-inch prism of kunzite with exceptional color and gemminess. This eye-catching kunzite crystal has stunning, saturated, dark pink color with a purplish tint and is transparent for its entire length. Looking down the c-axis of this kunzite, the color is an incredibly intense magenta! Two prism faces are stylishly striated, the other two display good vitreous luster and it is perfectly terminated on one end. The edges and crystal faces are sharp with only one a few tiny indentations that represent either tiny muscovite or albite crystals that were dissolved at some point late in the crystal's history. A beautiful gem kunzite crystal! Ex. Herb Obodda collection. Mass is 75.2 grams.
