Kyanite is a beautiful mineral believed by some to
quiet the mind and dissolve emotional confusion. It
has also been used to help restore energy balance
and create tranquility.
What Is Kyanite?
This semiprecious gem is comprised of aluminum
silicate. It’s commonly found in aluminium-rich
metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock,
according to Wikipedia. It’s hardness varies along
its crystal structure.
More than the Blues
Kyanite is most often available in cool, soothing
shades of deep-blue. It’s coloring isn’t usually
consistent throughout the stone. Streaks or splotches
of another color are common. It can also be colorless,
white, gray, green, black, orange or yellow. Vibrant
blue and blue-green coloring are most popular.
Uses of Kyanite
This crystal mineral is certainly used in beautiful
jewelry. However, it’s also used in materials
needing to withstand high temperatures such as
porcelain plumbing fixtures and dishes.
