Comment: From a new source in Afghanistan comes this huge and clean hiddenite, a variety of spodumene and a sister of kunzite. The new (or probably re-activated) and yet undisclosed mine in Afghanistan is distinguishable from all others by a fine mild yellow (not green as common). This mellow but attractive hue is a novelty in the market, and we can not think of any similar stone to compare it with. Recommended for the fine crystal, outstanding clarity and a excellent luster on a yet reasonable price level. Will make a limelight pendant. 14x18mm!
