    Notes:
    This gem was cut by me from a huge 298 carat crystal I bought in 2001. This material is untreated... It was nerve racking to saw this huge crystal into several cuttable pieces as i know that is when the crap hits the fan with the Spodumene family of minerals. But I only lost one section to cleavage fracturing. So I think I got 5 cuttable sections from this one crystal and this was one of them. My Afghanistan contact back then dealt in tourmalines, kunzite, and topaz; I have several crystals of this material left and one that is blue down the C axis. I am saving it for something unique as I have not seen that color before in a natural crystal... Nice big flashy gem that will surely catch and mesmerize your eyes. you will need sunglasses for this one. Sorry for the not so great photos but the light coming off this gem even in the shade was messing with my Nikon marco lens.
