This colorless spodumene is nicely translucent (more so than my lousy photos suggest) and doubly terminated. Natural etching adds appeal (recall that this species is easily etched under natural conditions). Outside of the etching the specimen is complete all around (no breaks or cleaves) and undamaged. Accompanied by a Walt Lidstrom label which dates the specimen to sometime before 1977.
