2.7" Kyanite Crystal Cluster with Quartz - Brazil

This 2.7" kyanite specimen contains fibrous bladed and tabular kyanite crystals associated with quartz. Deep blue color streaks can be found through the centers of some of the kyanite crystals, however, most of the surrounding crystals display a light cornflower-blue.

Note: Some kyanite crystals sold in other locations may be oiled to enhance color - This specimen has NOT been oiled.

Kyanite is a silicate mineral with the chemical formula Al2SiO5. It is known to be one of the most attractive natural minerals in the world, frequently found with lustrous blue bladed crystals. The intensity of color varies by location of extraction. Kyanite regularly forms fibrous, radiating crystals, but can be flattened and tabular. Some crystals form with white striations, color bands, and even multi-colored crystals, though many are typically found with a deep blue streak running down the middle.
