About the stone
Kyanite is a semi-precious stone that you will rarely encounter in the typical jewellery store. Most people have not heard of kyanite, and it is infrequently used in jewellery. It is known as an "exotic" gemstone.
The name kyanite comes from the Greek word “kyanos” meaning blue. It was discovered in the nineteenth century. Nepal and Brazil are the major producers of Kyanite but it is also found in Switzerland, Yugoslavia, Kenya, India and Australia among others.
Kyanite is an excellent and extremely valuable stone that is regarded as a great heat resistor. It is commonly used in the railroad and automobile industry and is used, among other things, to make spark plugs, foundry moulds and refractory bricks, brake shoes, cutting disks, grinding wheels, bathroom fixtures and even dentures!
Kyanite is believed to be excellent for meditation. It encourages to speak ones truth, cutting through fears and blockages. It is thought to slice through confusion, illusions, anger, frustration and stress. It is also believed to strengthen the voice and heal the throat and larynx, useful for performers and public speakers.
Kyanite set in Sterling Silver and 18 Karat Gold, keep clean with an anti-tarnish cloth.
Please be aware that kyanite is a stone that cannot be left submerged in water as it will break and finally dissolve, avoid wearing when showering or bathing.
