About Kunzite

Kunzite is a rare and expensive semi-precious gemstone which comes in many colors, including white, pink, yellow, blue and green. Sometimes referred to as Spodumene. Kunzite is named after G.F.Kunz who first described this gem in 1902.

Kunz described this fairly robust pastel pink gemstone as having two distinct properties “Phosphorescence” where Kunzite, in this respect similar to diamonds, is observed to glow in a darkened room after it has been exposed to the sun’s ultra-violet rays and “Pleochroism”, showing two different colors when viewed from different directions.

Kunzite sometimes changes color with exposure to light, usually settling on a pinkish tone.

Traditional Metaphysical Properties of Kunzite:

Kunzite is a very important gemstone to natural healers. It is said to align all chakras, removing energy blockages.

These special healing properties attributed to Kunzite may originate from its property of triboluminescence, or the stone's ability to absorb light and display a brief flash of light in the dark.

Detailed Info on the healing Properties of Kunzite can be found here.

Please Note:

  • The photos are enlarged to show the detail. You will not see the details with naked eye. Often, the actual stone will look better than what you see on the picture because of the difficulty in reproducing the color exactly. Sometimes stock picture may be used when there are more than one stone that look similar. In this case, the picture will be similar to the gems; but there may be individual variations.
