KUNZITE

Kunzite is one of the newer gems to be found. In fact, it just a little over one hundreds years old. Kunzite, while new to man is intensely beautiful, feminine and great for making ornamental jewelry. Kunzite comes in many colors, some of them more popular than others. For instance, Kunzite can come in a beautiful and intense pink or violet. It also comes frequently as colorless. Kunzite can be found with other mineral inclusions such as Hiddenite which makes the Kunzite look green or yellow. Other colors include gray and in some rare cases blue. Kunzite is one of the few minerals to have the attribute of pleochroism. Pleochroism means that the mineral can two or more colors present, usually depending on how you look at the gemstone. For instance, Kunzite in many cases can be found being pink, violet and colorless. In other cases, it can be yellow, green and colorless. Kunzite is found in usually large masses, sometimes weighing a few kilograms. These masses make it easy to create larger ornamental jewelry pieces out of Kunzite. Kunzite is relatively affordable, even at larger sizes. When shopping for Kunzite, make sure you base the value of the stone on its color intensity and its transparency. The more of these qualities, usually the better. Kunzite can be difficult to cut, because the intensity of the color can be lost if cut wrong. It is difficult to cut because of its near perfect cleavage. However, most professional cutters have mastered the art of cutting Kunzite.
