Blue Kyanite

Kyanite is most commonly seen in its blue form, but it also has black, green and orange varieties. Blue Kyanite forms in varying size bladed specimens. Gem quality Kyanite is translucent and makes for very attractive cabochon jewellery, though it is difficult to cut. Until fairly recently, it was confused with Sapphire, rather than being known as a separate mineral.
