Gene & Sally LaBerge Collection A beautiful lustrous single crystal, this one is zoned with a pastel green strip separated the pink base from the nearly colorless top. The gem clear top half of the crystal is topped with a complex pyramidal termination. A small cluster of lepidolite near the base is a perfect highlight for the crystal. The reverse of the label shows the rather stellar provenance for this specimen.
