Item Description

A superb, very sharp and totally GEM quality floater of Kunzite, from the lesser known Vanderberg Mine in Pala. Beautiful purplish-pink color with graceful hydrothermal etching and absolutely WATER CLEAR. Crystals of this quality from modern workings are even rarer than those surviving from the turn of the 1900s era of mining here. This was probably collected in the circia 1960s-1970s. From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
