That same year Kunzite was named after the New York gemologist and jeweler George Frederick Kunz, as he was the first person to give a comprehensive description of the stone.

Spodumene was discovered in 1877 in Brazil, although it was not until 1879 that Kunzite and hiddenite were recognized as different varieties of the same mineral.

The largest faceted Kunzite is an 880 Carat stone, which is currently on display at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington D.C.

Kunzite is often referred to as the “evening” stone because of its sensitivity to direct sunlight and excess heat.
