Description:Here we have a very attractive doubly-terminated, gemmy, bi-colored Kunzite from Afghanistan. The majority of the prism shows a lovely pinkish-purple hue, but the termination actually has a slightly "cat's eye" like appearance with a soft greenish-blue tone. You rarely see bi-colored Kunzite crystals from any locality, let alone gemmy, doubly-terminated crystals like this. The form, coloring and gemmines make it a great gem crystal from this most prolific gem producing region. It's not completely damage free, but it's still a very attractive representation of this classic material Good crystallized Kunzites are only found in a few places on earth. The specimen was priced at $750 in the inventory. Specimen weight is 85.45 grams.
