English: Spodumene (Var.: Kunzite)
Locality: Beebe Hole Mine, Mt. Tule, Jacumba District, San Diego County, California, USA (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: 9.6 x 6.8 x 1.8 cm.
A doubly terminated kunzite crystal with striking elongated-but-complete terminations from the famous find known as the Beebe Hole, hit by Loren Beebe while garnet-prospecting over 25 years ago in remote San Diego County. This one has excellent pink color for the find. It is large, and exceptionally translucent/gemmy. The Beebe Hole was hit by accident when Loren Beebe was prospecting for garnets (around 1976) in this remote area and stumbled on a spodumene shard loose on the ground. Exploration led to a single pocket which he collected in its entirety and hoarded for several decades, selling primarily the cutting rough and keeping most of the better specimens until only recent years when they have been sold locally in the Southern California area. Spodumenes of this quality are quite uncommon in San Diego County and most were found rather further north in the Pala area, so the Beebe spodumenes are important in that they come from a different region of the county than the famous old turn-of-the-century Pala pieces. Ex. Chuck Houser Collection.
