Lot Details
Property of a California Prospector
Rare California Kunzite
Oceanview Mine, Pala, San Diego County, California
The deep saturation of color in an astonishingly vivid lilac pink hue, as well the luster and brilliance render this an exceptional kunzite from this or any locality.
The size is particularly large, the clarity very good for the species with minimal inclusions. This is an excellent example for the collector of American gemstones and a very wearable one, at that.
Weighing approximately 50.83 carats and measuring 23.5 x 20.0 x 15.0mm
