These high quality semi-precious kunzite gemstone beads are a feminine, soft lilac pink with very few inclusions or off colors like the yellow found in lower quality kunzite. These beads are translucent to semi-transparent, with some beads exhibiting schiller.
Kunzite is the pink variety of spodumene, a member of the pyroxene group. While kunzite has a Mohs hardness of 6-1/2 to 7, it is fragile, so these beads have been stabilized. Kunzite can fade when exposed to light, so keep these safe in the dark when not worn.
