Kunzite is the pink variety of spodumene. It is a fairly young gem in terms of geology, and has only known for the past one hundred years or so. Discoverd by a New York jeweller and gemstone specialist George Frederick Kunz (1856 – 1932), he became the first person to give a comprehensive description of this stone, which had just been discovered in California hence its name Kunzite after "Kunz". Its pinkish hue comes from trace amounts of manganese. A very uplifting stone that encourages inner peace, love and joie de vivre or the joy of living.
This is what the Crystal Oversoul Attunement cards say about Kunzite. "Kunzite is an important healing companion as it encourages us to relax and take each step at a time, to come into the moment and accept life for what it is, not what we think it should be.
Sometimes in life we need action and determination to make things happen and sometimes we need to let go and let the universe handle the details. Kunzite comes into its own under these circumstances. Its soft and powerful light reminds us on a deep level to trust in our inner process, that all is well and will unfold for our deepest good.
Kunzite activates in us a deep appreciation of life, reminding us that the universe is a benevolent and loving force that seeks the best for us, if we allow it" Text copyright "the Crystal Oversoul Attunements" published by Findhorn Press 2011.
Hiddenite is the green or yellowish-green spodumene, discovered about a quarter of a century earlier. Hiddenite also bears the name of its discoverer, William Earl Hidden. During much hiddenite mining in the 1880s and 1890s it was also known as “lithia emerald”. Hiddenite opens the heart, and attracts more prosperity into your life.
