ORANGE KYANITE Coming soon ... beautiful LIME GREEN kyanite from Tanzania - new this season!
The name “kyanite,” derived from the Greek word, kyanos, means “dark blue,” but this useful mineral occurs in a variety of colors, including white, gray, green, brown, and black as well as different shades of blue. It may even be colorless and now, as of November 2008, it comes in dark orange. It can be translucent, and as purity increases, transparent. On relatively rare occasions, rockhounds have found kyanite crystals that are both thick enough and sufficiently clear to facet into strikingly beautiful gemstones.
Kyanite enhances creativity, broadens perspectives, and helps achieve mutual understanding. It is a stone of attunement and brings calmness and tranquility and can assist with meditation. It is a stone of channeling, altered states, vivid dreams, dream recall, and visualizations and gives protection during these states.
