Spodumene / (var: “Kunzite”) / Locality - Darra-i-Pech, (Pech), Chapa Dara District, Kunar Province (Nuristan), Afghanistan


Shipping to United States: Free

When it comes to gem quality display specimens of Kunzite, there are only about three places in the world today (Brazil, Afghanistan and San Diego County, California), that produce sharp crystals with excellent gemminess and color. For the most part, Brazil and San Diego County only produce loose single crystals off matrix, and Afghanistan has clearly produced the finest matrix specimens extant. This is a very worthwhile small cabinet sized display specimen of this well-known material featuring a very sharp and virtually WATER-CLEAR, vibrant purplish pink color doubly-terminated TWINNED crystal aesthetically sitting on Feldspar matrix. The twin line is distinct and sharp, and the crystal has sharp faces along the prism which are a nice contrast to the elegantly etched multi-pointed termination. One does not often have the chance to purchase an undamaged matrix Kunzite specimen for a reasonable price these days, and it seems that less of them are coming out now compared to 15 - 20 years ago.
