Spodumene var. kunzite
Nuristan, Afghanistan

It's actually hard to get spodumene crystals with nice crystal form: they are often highly etched or missing development of the termination. This small beauty is light pink with a textbook crystal shape. There is a notch at the top of the termination that is not damage, just irregular growth. I also love how tabular this crystal is: it is only 0.3 mm thick but 5 x 2.5 cm tall and wide. A really wonderful miniature.
