Kunzite

IGC Kunzite is a beautiful pink stone thought to possess romantic, mystical powers. Legend holds that the woman who wears Kunzite will find and keep the lover/husband of her choice for as long as she desires. Kunzite’s colour ranges from purple to pink and comes from the spodumene mineral. Kunzite’s colour may appear violet-pink or colourless, depending on the angle from which you look. Stronger-coloured Kunzite is of course more valuable than lighter-coloured. Irradiation is used to intensify Kunzite’s colour, which comes from manganese. Sunlight and exposure to strong heat can fade the colour of Kunzite.
