What an unfortunate name for a gemstone family that heralds such beautiful gems as Kunzite and Hiddenite Its name is derived from “spondumenos” which is Greek for “burnt to ashes” and came about due to the similarity that some Spodumene specimens have with the greyish appearance of ash. All members of the Spodumene family are highly plechroic.
Even though Spodumene is rarely set in jewellery itself, its three descendants Kunzite, Green Hiddenite and (the more recently discovered) transparent yellow Triphane are amongst some of the most desirable gems on the planet. This last gem, Triphane, should not be confused with the sleeping agent tripophane, which is found in its most concentrated form in turkeys - hence the real reason you fall asleep after Xmas dinner.
