Kunzite is the pink to violet form of Spodumene, a lithium aluminum silicate with a hardness of 6-7. Its crystal system is monoclinic and forms as prismatic crystals with vertical striations. It is found in granite pegmatites, often in association with feldspar, muscovite, quartz, lepidolite mica, and other pegmatite minerals. It can be faceted into beautiful gems but cutting is difficult because of the stone's perfect cleavage. The main deposits are in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Brazil, Madagascar, California, and Maine.
Kunzite is a gem variety of Spodumene. Do not leave in the sunlight or the color will fade.
Kunzite is a calming and balancing stone and a Love stone, opening one's heart to love for fellow man and creatures. It helps one to be calm and gentle. It eases stress.
Kunzite can activate the silent voice of the heart, opening a wordless communion between one's mental and emotional aspects. It is one of the best stones to be given as a gift. People who receive Kunzite, even when they are unaware of its energies, often find themselves feeling impulsively kind and generous towards others.
Kunzite harmonizes well with Hiddenite, Moldavite, Darwin Glass, Morganite, Rose Quartz, Emerald, Pink Tourmaline, Petalite, and Scolecite.
