Kunzite is the trade name of the lithium rich pink variety of spodumene, a lithium-rich pyroxene species that was first described by José Bonifácio de Andrada e Silva (1763-1838), the Portuguese-Brazilian mineralogist that became famous for being tutor and mentor of the first emperor of Brazil, D. Pedro I. Pink to slightly purple colours, strong pleochroism (e.g. different colours may be seen in different directions of observation) and perfect cleavage (a challenge for the cutter and the gem setter) are known characteristics.
The name “kunzite” itself is a homage to George Frederick Kunz (1856-1932) the illustrious American passionate mineralogist, gemmologist and author that worked a lifetime for Tiffany & Co since 1877 and that described this pink variety of spodumene in 1902 at the famous Pala pegmatite in California, USA. Spodumene is a relevant lithium ore but when occurs in transparent crystals of cutting quality it is cut into a gemstone and set jewellery, like in this platinum and diamond ring by Tiffany & Co. featuring a 25.29 carat oval-shaped kunzite © Tiffany & Co
