1. What is Kyanite Stone?

Kyanite is a mineral found mainly in metamorphic rocks. It is usually formed by high-pressure changes of clay minerals during the metamorphism of sedimentary rocks.

Moreover, the name Kyanite comes from the Greek word “Kuanos” or “Kyanos”, meaning deep blue, alluding to its characteristic blue color. However, in addition to the usual blue color, Kyanite also exists other colors such as: white, gray, green, orange and yellow. Kyanite is most valuable when it has the same blue color as Sapphire. Kyanite is also sometimes called Disthene, Rhaeticite or Cyanite

The most special feature that makes Kyanite famous in gemstones is its extreme anisotropy. Anisotropic gems exhibit different properties, depending on their crystal orientation. Kyanite has a variable hardness within a single crystal.

Eventually, when Kyanite is cut parallel to the long axis, the hardness is only about 4.5 on the Mohs scale, but if cut perpendicular, that number goes up to 6.5-7.

4. Instructions for preserving Kyanite stone

In general, Kyanite is quite durable, but many other gemstones such as Topaz can still easily scratch it. Therefore, when wearing mixed jewelry, it is necessary to pay close attention to the hardness of the stones. Because Kyanite has perfect cleavage, it can also break apart if it is subjected to a strong force. Therefore, when playing sports or doing heavy work, you should remove the Kyanite stone ring.

Generally, Kyanite stone should be avoided in contact with strong cleaning agents that can lose its luster and color.

Normally, other gems after a period of use must purify the negative energy that the stone absorbs. However, Kyanite is one of only two gemstones that do not have to purify dirty energy (the other is amethyst). When Kyanite gets dusty, you just need to clean it with a soft cloth with clean water.
