You should definitely come check these out in person!! They’re too beautiful to not come admire and pet them yourself.

First discovered in 1902 by U.S. mineralogist G.F. Kunz (hence the name), kunzite is a relatively new stone. Because of this it is not mentioned in any ancient sources, but it has quickly gained popularity for both it’s beauty and it’s loving, calming energy. Kunzite is most commonly found in Brazil, but has also been found in Afghanistan, Burma/Myanmar, Madagascar, Pakistan, and the United States.

Kunzite is a perfect heart chakra stone. Many people can hold kunzite up to their heart and feel the love radiating from the stone. It helps you to come from a loving place for your thoughts and communication. Kunzite is a stone that induces relaxation and releases tension, allowing the wearer to let go of the tightness and stress that we usually carry in our bodies. It is even believed to loosen tight, tension-prone muscles if held over them.
.
Metaphysically, kunzite enhances creativity, self-expression, and free expression of your feelings. It increases tolerance for yourself and others, reduces stress-related anxiety, lifts depression, relieves panic attacks, and heals heartache. As an introspective stone, kunzite is also wonderful for helping you to grow into the person you want to be or to become a better & more aware version of yourself. It combines intellect, intuition, & inspiration to induce change and helps you to act on constructive criticism.
.
Physically, kunzite is believed to strengthen your heart & circulatory system, calm nerve issues, lessen joint pain and boost the immune system. It is also believed to lift depression and to help you recover physically from the effects of emotional stress. A wonderful woman’s stone, kunzite helps to relieve hormonal problems, ease pregnancy & motherhood, and lessen postpartum depression.
