In search of the exotic and new, Tiffany’s eminent gemologist Dr. George Frederick Kunz
climbed the Ural Mountains of Russia, crossed the deserts of Africa and roamed the
steppes of Siberia. For all his distant wanderings, he held in special esteem the bounty
of America, where in 1902 was discovered kunzite, the prized lilac-pink stone that was
named after him. It’s a fitting tribute to his passion for unearthing the world’s
most stunning gems.
