Spodumene var. Kunzite - gem crystal
Laghman
Laghman Province, Afghanistan
10.5 x 3.5 x 1.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
new year 2021

A complete and undamaged Kunzite crystal that is doubly terminated with good color. The terminations on each end are of different habits, both are very sharp and distinct. The crystal is very transparent, it is possible to read through the center of the prism. Kunzites have a very deep violet color when viewed on end but much more pale pink on the prism faces, this piece has an especially strong color gradation. Fine Afghan specimens like this are a good value.
