Kyanite Mineral Specimen for SaleKyanite

   
Rocks, Minerals, and FossilsKyanite (Al2SiO5) forms during the regional metamorphism of clay-rich sediments.  It's found in mica schists, gneisses, and associated hydrothermal quartz veins and pegmatites.

Kyanite's name comes from kyanos, the Greek word for dark blue.  Kyanite is usually blue or blue-gray, but can also be green, orange, or colorless.  Kyanite's French name is disthene, meaning double hardness, because Kyanite crystals have a Mohs hardness of 5 lengthways and 7 across.

Kyanite is an index mineral that helps estimate the temperature, depth, and pressure at which a rock metamorphosed.  It's used in the manufacture of porcelain products and the linings of kilns and furnaces, as well as electrical insulators, abrasives, and electronics.

The Kyanite specimens on this page are from Brazil's famous Minas Gerais mining district.
