This specimen of kunzite shows exceptional clarity and very good pink color along the length of the crystal. The pleochroism is also excellent, as the crystal appears completely colorless from one angle, yet pink from another. It also appears to be undamaged. At first, I thought that there were some diagonal scratches on the face of the specimen, but close examination reveals that they are internal to the crystal, and along the "parting" direction, possibly evidence that the crystal was flexed slightly at some point in its history. The crystal faces show a complex pattern, with typical curved terminations.
