Long Skinny Kunzite Crystal Pendant

$ 42.00
This lovely crystal is known as kunzite. Kunzite possesses unusual properties. It is strongly pleochroic, meaning there is a color intensity variation and change when the crystal is viewed from different directions. This fact is very well considered when the stone is being cut. It also has this indescribable shimmer within the crystal, and like diamonds, will glow when exposed to other elements. Perhaps in Jim Henson's movie, "The Dark Crystal" was actually a huge crystal of kunzite.

This fine crystal is suspended by sterling silver wire with a faceted texture. It's long, skinny shape makes it unique, yet also fragile, so this piece requires more delicate care. The pendant measures 6mm in with and has a length of 80mm, which includes the silver bail. In this listing you may choose to purchase the pendant alone or add the chain shown in the pictures. This is a sterling silver, flat snake chain that is adjustable with a slider. This feature allows you to wear the necklace as short as you want and at any length up to 28".

History and Metaphyscial Properties:

Kunzite is a newly discovered mineral that was found in America around 1903. It was named after Dr. George Frederic Kunz, because of his services to the scientific world in the gem branch of mineralogy. It was originally found in San Diego County, California. The vicinity of this discovery was already of great interest to students of gem minerals because of the near by discoveries of other gems like tourmaline, rubellite and lepidolite. The phosphorescent properties of this stone which allows it to glow when near other elements not only make it an unusual semi precious stone, but also a very interesting mineral to scientists. Supply of this stone is short and will not be sustained for the growing appreciation and demand for it in the jewelry trade. Metaphysically, kunzite activates the heart chakra and is said to have the power to dispel negativity and to strengthen the energy field around the body. Pink Kunzite can be valuable in helping to alleviate depression and to reduce stress-related anxiety and feelings of panic. It's also used to stimulate the immune system and to strengthen the circulatory system and the heart muscle.
