Kunzite was first found in Connecticut, USA. But the first commercially significant deposit was discovered in 1902 in the Pala region of California, where Morganite beryl was also first discovered. In a brilliant marketing move the miners named the gem after its most likely customer- George Kunz- who was a legendary gem scholar, gemologist, and gem buyer for Tiffany & Co at the turn of the century . Morganite was named for the customer’s customer: J.P. Morgan. Today most Kunzite is mined in Brazil, Afghanistan, and Madagascar. Kunzite is often found in association with Morganite and Pink Tourmaline, the other popular pink gemstones.
