Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 6.9 x 5.4 cm
Pech, Kunar Province, Afghanistan
This specimen jumps out at us, as an unusually brilliantly glassy, lustrous morganite crystal. It has stunning water-clear transparent zones mixed with the intergrown cleavelandite matrix. There is a small bit of damage to the upper-left, almost out of sight to the back edge, and the front is otherwise complete. Actually, the crystal is a composite crystal with other faces poking out in back, and is almost a floater - completely crystallized all around. Again, the transparency and internal brilliance is STUNNING...and in person you can look right through to the internal matrix inclusions.
