Kunzite isn't a rare mineral, but because of the way its crystals form, it is very difficult to cut and facet.  This makes the high-end, translucent kunzite very expensive, and it is normally cut in cabachons (without drills) for jewelry.  Beads are usually fashioned from more opaque kunzite, such as the Aves of this rosary, which are a quiet, soft bubblegum pink.  They are nearly absent the black inclusions which often mar lower grades of this stone. The Paters here are a fine kunzite, with nice translucency and schiller.  Bronze parts and antiqued brass findings lend a richness to the color palette of this piece, and that desirable "instant antique" look! 6.5mm and 9mm beads, with 20g wire construction, give this rosary a pleasing weightiness.  Pretty!
