Kunzite Physical Properties - Kunzite is Pink Spodumene, a lithium aluminium silicate, relatively rare pyroxene found mainly in lithium rich pegmatites. Spodumene has been found in gigantic proportions, one single crystal measuring over 47 feet long and weighing 90 tons! Spodumene is the principle source of lithium the lightest of all metals. Gem spodumene occurs very rarely and in much smaller. The colour in gem spodumenes ranges from colourless to yellow, pink to violet (kunzite), yellowish-green to medium deep green (hiddenites) and an extremely rare light blue colour. The colour in the gem varieties of spodumene is due to impurities of iron (producing yellow to green coloured spodumene), chromium (producing medium-deep green coloured spodumene) or manganese (producing pink to lilac spodumene), all substituting for aluminium in the crystal structure.
