I almost fell out of my seat .....Jesus look at that beauty! #Repost @alandhart ・・・ “A beautiful deep lilac crystal of ‘kunzite’ with lovely pleochroism from the Mawi pegmatite, Nuristan, Afghanistan. Stand out for me is the incredible lustre with depth of colour, even though the crystal is etched - so typical of this locality. As we know when crystals grow from solution, we not only need the right ingredients but there is usually a pretty narrow range of conditions to allow growth and indeed conditions in place to continue for their ‘survival’. Many crystals show etch pits were crystals have dissolved, the reverse of ‘crystallisation’ where anions and cations are removed from the surface into a solution, creating other minerals or being removed from the system itself. Recently, a lot of work has been done on dissolution (natural and laboratory) as its important in understanding reactions important in geochemistry. It is fundamentally all about the energy, where the underlying structure is strongly bonded, dissolution is slow, other weaker areas, defects and grain boundaries it is faster. Here the top face is obviously dissolving fast producing these lovely ‘triangular’ or diamond shaped sculptural deep ‘hillocks’, quite similarly seen when other monoclinic minerals like orthoclase dissolve. Looking at this gemmy ‘wonder’ is beautiful the end result of a lot of energy transfer and subsequent reaction! Such a pleasing colour don’t you think? @fineartminerals #wow #minerals #gems #mineralogy #crystals #crystal #crystalgrowth #chemistry #science #education #kunzite #lilac #amazing #gemmology #dissolve #rockhound #fineminerals #artistic #sculptural #natureart #amazingnature #colourpop #wellbeing #settingsun #beautiful #iwantone
