Spodumenne var. Kunzite
stock #ALEC-12-603
Darra-I Pech Pegmatite Field
Konar (Kunar) Province, Afghanistan
11.1 x 7.3 x 9.9 CM (cabinet)
price: $480
Post Tucson 2015

An older, sizable matrix specimen of light blueish Clevelandite hosts a 5.8 CM Kunzite crystal sharply terminated with good color and zoning. Associated are Quartz crystals to over 3 CM and a few scattered Elbaite and Schorl are noted too. The esthetics are quite nice while the Kunzite is nicely etched and in fine undamaged condition. Some chipping and bruises are seen on the quartz which keeps the price quite low but this still displays nicely.
Spodumene (bi-color pink and green)
stock #116-JM-1227

Konar (Kunar) Province, Afghanistan
6.8 x 3.5 CM (cabinet)
price: $380


A very clean pink to green Kunzite (spodumene) with great form and good pastel colors. Ex John Marshall Collection (with labels). From finds in the early 80's in Kunar this age ensures that the colors you see are stable and will not fade. Bi colored Spods are rare and they are clearly not irradiated or faked either. In good condition and mostly gem clear inside, a good gem crystal that will not break the bank.
Elbaite Tourmaiine
stock #7 -13-082
Paroon Valley
Konar (Kunar) Province, Afghanistan
5.4x3.3 (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $975


A big and glassy crystal with a very dark blue green shaft becomes a lighter blue towords the top, grades to a water clear zone and ends with a thin pink-red cap. Great luster and in very good condition, with only very tiny bits of edge wear that is not easy to find and a small inobtrusive chip to the back aside of the termination. While not distracting, this damage exists and makes the crystal much less expensive yet it looks like it cost far more.
