With sensual lilac and delicate pink hues, Kunzite is unique in the gem world and is thought of as the most romantic and feminine of all pink gemstones.
One beautiful aspect of Kunzite is its phosphorescence. Kunzite has an ability to retain light and glow in a darkened room after it has been exposed to sunlight. This is why it is known as the "Evening Gemstone".
