An Introduction

Shining like a star and pacifying like a night breeze, Kunzite is Jewel of the Night.

Kunzite is comparatively a new gemstone which was first discovered in 1902, in the Pegmatites of Pala. In fact, the name of the gemstone is taken after George F. Kunz, the famous mineralogist who first identified it. However, Kunzite only became a mainstream gemstone after 1990, before that these stones were only used for collections. This crystal is a symbol of love and connection. It also carries health and healing benefits, such as improving the reproductive system, hormone-linked migraines, menstrual problems, skin rashes, anesthesia, etc.
