    Description

    Gemstone: Kunzite - 82.02 Cts.
    Dara-e-Pech pegmatite field
    Dara-e-Pech District, Kunar
    Afghanistan

    Kunzite is the most popular variety of the mineral Spodumene. This top-example gemstone features an expert cut and polish, which highlights the stone's beautiful lilac-pink hue. The body color is nicely saturated and well-balanced. The stone lights up with excellent scintillation and displays vivid brilliance. The oval shaped stone features modified brilliant facets. Due to the softer nature of the material, there is a nick on the pavilion and a few nicks along the girdle. Care is needed when handling this material, and it should be kept away from heat. Overall, this gorgeous gemstone is top-caliber. The sizable example from Afghanistan weighs in at over 82 carats and features the coveted pink hue that collectors admire.
    Measurements: 28.49 x 22.15 x 19.21 mm, 82.02 cts.
