Description: Red/pink Spinel crystal with good luster and areas of gemminess. A complete crystal with natural irregular growth (some indentations) and good luster. This is a good quality crystal for what is typically available. The gem value of these crystals is just so high that typically any crystal with even a hint of gem value is broken up for rough, and what is left for us collectors are chalky, brick colored crystals that aren't so appealing. Mahenge pink spinels cut what are considered some of the world's finest pink spinel gemstones, and good crystals from this locality are uncommon because most cut or broken up for their cutting potential.
