You may not have heard of kunzite, one of the newer gemstones on the market, but once you’ve seen this decidedly feminine and seductive member of the spodumene family, you aren’t likely to forget it. Named for gemologist George Frederick Kunz, kunzite possesses wonderful clarity, with delicate pink tones with hints of violet. It is most valuable in its deeper shades. In order to get the full effect of this gemstone’s color potential, it must be precisely cut. Depending on the angle from which the gemstone is viewed, it can appear violet, pink, or even colorless due to a phenomenon known as the seductive gemstone “pleochroism,’ which means “multi-coloredness.” When treated to a trillion cut, kunzite provides a beautiful display of nuanced color play.

So, what are you waiting for? Add a touch of sophistication to your wardrobe, with pink kunzite jewelry which can be worn for any occasion.
