Hiddenite is the green gem variety of the mineral Spodumene. Hiddenite is named after William Earl Hidden, who was instrumental in identifying this new gemstone. The town in North Carolina where this gemstone was found was subsequently given the name “Hiddenite” in honor of the gemstone.
Spodumene is a fairly prevalent mineral, but mostly dull and uninteresting in its most common forms. However, its two distinctly colored transparent varieties, Kunzite (pink) and Hiddenite (green) are very aesthetic and valued as gemstones. Hiddenite is much rarer than Kunzite, and can is highly valued, especially the deeper green color forms.
Strictly speaking, Hiddenite comes from only one locality in the world - Hiddenite, North Carolina. However, as newer deposits of green Spodumene have been discovered in Afghanistan and Brazil, this term has been applied to all forms of transparent green Spodumene worldwide. Chemical Formula: LiAlSi2O6; Hardness: 6.5 - 7; Color: green, yellow.
