Here's a beautiful ring for your consideration. This is a faceted Kunzite from Minas Gerais, Brazil. This was cut Belo Horizonte, Brazil This is native-style cutting and is quite good. The two accent gems are natural White Sapphires and combined they weigh .32 carats.Kunzite is an interesting gem, somewhere between 6.5 and 7 on the Hardness Scale. The pink color comes from Manganese. Kunzite is referred to as an "Evening Stone", meaning it should only be worn at night. This is because the Manganese is not stable in strong sunlight and the pink color will eventually fade. If you are looking for a gem to wear to dinner parties or to the theater at night you can't go wrong with Kunzite.
