This particular Kunzite specimen consists of part of a large, flat prismatic crystal that broke off during its formation and subsequently underwent partial healing. The area where the break occurred has multiple curved faces that appear conchoidal, which is not the way that Kunzite fractures. The intact faces look like the typical faces from a monoclinic prismatic spodumene crystal, with heavy, parallel striations on its prism faces and uniform growth patterns on its termination faces. It has a pale pink color and a vitreous luster, and is transparent and very clear, with only a few visible internal fractures.
