A section of a broken prismatic Kunzite crystal constitutes this specimen. It appears that the piece was broken on both ends during its formation, then partially healed. This may not be true, but I believe it is, because both terminations look nothing like most of the natural terminations that I have seen. It has a prismatic form that has an almost perfectly rectangular cross-section. All faces have a vitreous luster and its color is a pale pink. It is transparent and very clear, though there are several visible internal fractures and faint veil-like inclusions. Even though it does not have actual terminations, this specimen is very pretty.
