Kunzite is probably one of the most beautiful gemstones that I have ever seen. Kunzite is a pink variety of Spodumene. Kunzite is bright pink or mauve in color. The color of Kunzite can be very light pink to quite dark pink. The color varies with the direction at which the gem is being viewed. Kunzite gemstones are hard to photograph because they come out bluish in color in the picture. This is because of their violet fluorescence. Also this gemstone has strong cleavage, which means that they can break apart if knocked. So it is not recommended to set a Kunzite in a ring. However setting them in a pendant is OK. Also because of the cleavage these are hard to facet or cut.

Kunzite crystals can grow quite big. I saw one big Kunzite crystal, a couple of years ago, which was about 2 feet long from Afghanistan. Strangely not many kunzite crystal specimens are found in the market. Kunzite is becoming more and more famous and more and more expensive at the same time at a very high speed. Unfortunately many heat-treated kunzites are also making way in to the market as well. The bad thing about this heat treated Kunzites are that their color fades with in a week of wearing in the sunlight. As a matter of fact even natural Kunzites fade in sunlight but not as fast as a treated kunzite. So care must be taken when going out, making sure that direct sunlight is not shone on the Kunzite. Think of Kunzite as a nocturnal gemstone.
