Kunzite is the typically light pink to purple gem variety of the pyroxene mineral Spodumene that is composed of lithium, aluminum, and silicate. Kunzite is a part of the Monoclinic crystal system and has perfect cleavage. Although it was initially discovered in California, the current supply is commonly from Afghanistan. Kunzite fades from prolonged exposure to sunlight, when set into jewelry it has become known as an "evening wear" gemstone.
This is a one-of-a-kind specimen of Kunzite offers a great opportunity to see the natural crystal structure found within Kunzite along with a smaller structure of natural Quartz! The color is a soft, translucent pink/purple, and the piece shows off a fantastic chatoyancy. This would be excellent for collectors, as a meditation crystal, or for use in lapidary projects. Because Kunzite does fade in sunlight, it is recommended that you keep it out of direct sunlight.
Kunzite is believed to be an extremely spiritual stone with a high vibration. It is a gem commonly recommended for those who have difficulty entering into meditation, and is also thought to activate the Heart Chakra and align it with the Throat Chakra, and Third Eye.
