Mineral Specimen #6314 Pink Spodumene
Strickland Pegmatite, Portland, Middlesex Co., Connecticut
9.1 x 2.9 x 3.2 cm
Ex. University of Michigan Geology Department
Light pink colored Spodumene from a classic New England location. The specimen has a good glossy luster. The Spodumene fluoresces a pink/orange under SW. Please note: this specimen was filthy with decades of accumulated dust and grime and was a dull gray/tan color. In the cleaning process, the small attached label came free and has been reglued in the same location which was apparent under UV due to residual glue.
Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
