Comment: From a new source (only one was found) 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 orange tint (not green as common). This mellow, 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 being a light weight but hard enough material! Take my personal word for it: This gem is an extraordinarily fine example of his little known variety and is worth every single $. We have not seen another of its kind, so one must assume this is a world-class singularity: one of those gems which I would rather keep than sell, but that is my problem. For such a gem there is no market price, but $550/ct does seem meager.
