Kunzite (Spodumene) Kunar Valley Afghanistan.

Esta es una Spodumena var. Kuncita en matriz procedente del Valle Kunar en Afganistan.

Se muestra bajo LW con una intensa respuesta naranja que torna a lavanda en MW y SW pero es quizas su intensa fosforescencia de color rojo lo que la hace realmente sorprendente y por ultimo bajo luz natural. 7 x 4 cm

This is a Spodumene var. Kuncite on matrix from the Kunar Valley in Afghanistan.

It is shown under LW with an intense orange response that turns to lavender in MW and SW but it is perhaps its intense red phosphorescence which makes it really surprising. 7 x 4 cm.
