Kunzite is a fairly young gemstone and was only discovered in 1902 by gemstone specialist and jeweler George Frederick Kunz.
It was discovered in San Diego County, California.
Kunzite is of the pink Spodumene variety. It’s a gemstone that has a pink to violet color, and sometimes it’s even colorless.
It’s a transparent and high luster stone. Kunzite gets its beautiful lilac-pink colors from the presence of manganese in the stone.
