The Big Kahuna -- The Big Kahuna is one of the top two, perhaps three, American kunzite specimens known. It was the discovery of large gemmy crystals of this pink to lilac to violet spodumene (the mineral species name) in San Diego County’s Pala district that led to its naming as a new gem variety, kunzite. It is named after George F. Kunz, who was Tiffany’s chief gemologist and vice-president a century ago, at the time of the discovery. . . . Spodumene (kunzite); 28 cm tall (15.6 cm wide; 2 cm thick).
