History & Origin:

Kunzite is a soft pink or violet variety of the pyroxene mineral spodumene - a lithium aluminium silicate. It was named after the famous Tiffany & Co. gemologist & jeweller George F. Kunz, who was the first to identify it in 1902. Coloured by manganese, this beautiful lilac mineral can be found in places such as Brazil, the United States, Canada, Madagascar, Mexico, Sweden, Western Australia, Afghanistan & Pakistan. It displays an unusual phenomenon called pleochroism - shifting from one colour to another when viewed from different directions. Unfortunately, Kunzite will become unstable & lose its colour drastically if left exposed to sunlight. It is common for this mineral to be heated or irradiated in order to alter, brighten or enhance its colour. Interestingly, Kunzite, as well as the entire spodumene group, once served as important source of lithium metal & is commonly used today for producing rechargeable batteries, cell phones, cameras, & other portable electronic devices
