    Kunzite is in the best known member of the Spodumene (SPOD-you-mene) mineral  species. The actual trade name Kunzite was named after George F. Kunz, the noted Gemologist for Tiffany & Company, in 1902.  This Pink to bluish Purple gem is frequently encountered in very large sizes and in deep cut Gems as a way of maximizing the color. Smaller stones, those under 10 Carats, will usually have lighter color than larger ones. Kunzite is heat sensitive, abrupt temperature changes could cause fracturing. Kunzite can also fade when exposed to strong light for extended periods, so caution should be exercised regarding a lot of exposure to sunlight.
    These vitreous, transparent, faceted stones are found in Brazil, Afghanistan, Madagascar, and the US.
    Chemicals that could attack this gem are concentrated hydrofluoric acids.
TREATMENTS - The very nature of Kunzite requires it's color to be enhanced and stabilized by Irradiation followed by Heat treatment.
CARE - It is very risky to clean Kunzite jewelry in an UltraSonic Cleaner, and very risky to use a steamer. We recommend Ionic Cleaners and/or warm, soapy water and a soft brush as the best way to clean this gemstone jewelry.
