Here is a lovely double terminated, gemmy crystal of kunzite, a colorful form of spodumene. It is a very pretty pink prismatic crystal showing good pleochroism (i.e., the pink color is a darker purplish pink when you look down the axis of the crystal from either end). The sides of the crystal are striated, and it is complete all around. The inside ranges from transparent to translucent. The terminations have been lightly etched, leaving pointy cone-like forms sticking up all over both tips of the crystal.
