What To Look For
Kunzite’s most-valued colors are an intense pink to violetish purple, but it is most often seen in light pink to light violet hues.
It is not uncommon to find kunzites that are virtually inclusion-free, so the presence of many eye-visible inclusions will greatly lower its value.
Kunzite’s greatest color concentration is visible when you look down the length of a rough crystal. Cutters try to orient finished gems to take advantage of this fact.
It is not unusual to find faceted kunzite in large sizes.
