Pink Kunzite

The pink to purple crystals of the mineral Spodumene are called Kunzite after George Frederick Kunz, an American mineralogist and collector. The pink to lilac purple colour of Kunzite is caused by the presence of manganese in the crystal. Kunzite is a beloved gem because of its brightness and colour and is brighter in colour or paler depending on the viewing angle. Be careful with bright light or sunlight this may cause the colour of Kunzite to fade.

Spodumene

Spodumene is a mineral consisting of lithium, aluminium and silicate. The crystals can be colourless, yellow, green, pink or purple. The colourless variant is called Triphane. The pink to purple variety is Kunzite and the yellow to green variety is Hiddenite. Spodumene is an important source for the extraction of lithium.
