Kunar Valley, Kunar Province, Afghanistan.
This is really an unusual crystal from the standpoint that it appears to be a phantom crystal. By that, I mean the lower portion of the piece shows a very distinct, rich pinkish-purple color, and suddenly stops as it transitions into a pale yellow-green hue. When you hold the crystal up to the light, you can see a faint Roman Sword shaped phantom inside the crystal. It is not out of the question that Spodumene could form phantom crystals. With that said, the piece is still an amazingly good quality bi-color Spodumene crystal. One of the faces is remarkably glassy and lustrous which does well to show off the great gemminess and color. The specimen has a nice frosted termination, with sharp, undamaged edges and the piece is noticeably pleochroic as is the case with most Spodumene crystals.
