Decorate your jewelry designs with the gemstone style of these Dakota Stones beads. Kunzite was named after a former Tiffany & Co. vice president, famed mineralogist and jeweler George Frederick Kunz, who first catalogued the stone in 1902. It is a variety of the silicate Spodumene, and forms naturally as a glassy, transparent stone. It can be colorless, pink, lilac, yellow or green, with darker shades being higher in value. Kunzite is prone to fading in direct sunlight.
Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
