Kunzite is pink-violet spodumene, named after G.F. Kunz, who first described this gem in 1902. It has a hardness of 6 to 7, and perfect cleavage which makes it a difficult gem to cut. It has been found in Afghanistan, the USA, Brazil, Burma and Malagasy Republic.
Mystic Lore: Intuitive sources say that Kunzite activates the heart chakra and stimulates deep feelings of love, peace and relaxation. It is also said to dissolve negativity, promote maturity, increase sensuality, refresh the mind, deepen meditation and align the chakras
