07703: Spodumene (variety Kunzite)
Cabinet - 13.7 x 9.9 x 1.3 cm (5.4 x 3.9 x 0.5 inches)
Weight - 234 grams (0.52 pounds)
Specimen status: Sold

A large nearly 100% transparent kunzite 'sail', with a delicate lavender color that my camera failed to capture correctly. (The vertical lines in the second photo are an artifact of my photographic lighting.) All edges show minor etching (typical for kunzite). Cleaved along the bottom edge (typical for this material, as kunzite is easily cleaved along the c-axis) but otherwise no damage. Weighs 234 grams. I've owned the specimen for a few years, and the color appears to be stable.
