Spodumene var. Kunzite
Mawi pegmatite, Nilaw-Kolum pegmatite field, Nuristan, Afghanistan
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 1.7 x 1.0 cm

A beautiful pastel pink, kunzite crystal, unusually sharp. The terminations on these are often etched, but this is about the sharpest possible, with no deformation at all. It is just a gorgeous mineral, self-explanatory in its shape and color. Note that kunzite is highly pleochroic, meaning the color will vary from pastel pale pink to a hot pink depending on the angle of light going into the crystal in your display! Comes with a custom lucite base.
