Mawi Pegmatite, Du Ab District, Nilaw-Kolum Pegmatite Field, Nuristan, Afghanistan
This is a classic kunzite from the Mawi Pakistan. It is doubly terminated and complete with gem grade crystallization at the top. It shows the classic blade form with prominent striations and light purple color. In natural light, the piece is white to lilac. It takes directed lighting well, creating a deeper pink to purple glow throughout the crystal. It could be faceted (at the top) but it a fantastic chunky specimen of this lithium pegmatic material. It was previously in the J. Cilen collection with a card and number label corresponding on the back of the piece.
