A fine, doubly-terminated, lustrous gem crystal of Spodumene, with one stepped termination, and the other is the jagged terminations typical of the famous Beebe Hole. It has a very pale pink color overall with a more intense Kunzite pink color looking down the c axis which is also typical of this locality. These are very rare specimens. In 1974, Loren Beebe was prospecting for garnets and stumbled on a Spodumene fragment, which led to a single pocket which he collected and hoarded for several decades, selling mostly the cutting rough and keeping most of the better specimens. In 2005, his friend, Al Ordway, was given the last 30 or so specimens to sell, and this is one of those. It is in excellent condition.
