About Kunzite:

Kunzite is a pink variety of "spodumene" first identified in 1902 by influential Tiffany and Co. mineralogist, Dr. George Frederick Kunz.  The first material identified came from the Pala District in San Diego County, California.  Today, stones of importance still come from San Diego, as well as Afghanistan, Mexico, Brazil, and Madagascar.  Kunzite is often found with other pink gems such as morganite and pink tourmaline.  The pink color is directly caused by the element lithium; large, low quality crystals are often processed to extract this element for industrial use.

Kunzite is 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs hardness scale and can safely be enjoyed in all types of jewelry.  Kunzite jewelry can be cleaned with chemical jewelry cleaner unless otherwise noted on the label.  It is important to note that some kunzite is known to permanently fade color when exposed to intense, direct sunlight for extended periods of time.  While this is not the case for all kunzite stones, we recommend storing kunzite jewelry in a sealed, dark box or location when not being worn as a precaution.
