KUNZITE

Kunzite is a purplish pink variety of the gem family spodumene.  It was discovered relatively recently, in 1902 by George Frederick Kunz (1856-1932), namesake of the stone.  Kunz is considered the father of modern gemmology, and was the first Chief Gemmologist to be employed by a jewellery company, the eminent American house of Tiffany & Co.
