A pink gem variety of Spodumene. LiAlSi2O6.
Spodumene is worked as an ore of lithium, but it is most highly prized as a gem material – the varieties Kunzite (pink) and Hiddenite (green) are especially sought after. It is usually found as a constituent of lithium-rich pegmatites. Kunzite is named for George Frederick Kunz (1856-1932), American mineralogist with Tiffany & Co.
Kunzite activates the heart chakra, aligning the heart chakra with the throat and third eye chakras. Promotes peace. Used to remove obstacles, dissolves negativity and raises the vibration around itself. Expands the energy field and assists with meditation.
