Kyanite - Color, Facts, Power, Mythology, History And Myths

Bearing a resemblance to that of fine–quality sapphire, Kyanite is an exquisite blue colored stone, which was discovered way back in the nineteenth century. Kyanite is derived from the Greek word “Kuanos”, which means blue.

Kyanite is considered as an excellent stone for meditation and peaceful healing of body and mind. Like Citrine Kyanite is also that stone, which neither retains nor accumulates the negative energy. Because of being neutral towards negative energies, Kyanite never needs cleansing and clearing like other crystals.

Blue and the shades of blue-green in Kyanite are regarded as the most high-priced stones. The crystals of Kyanite that are attractive and transparent can be cut in faceted and cabochon gemstones, and they are considered to be exotic gemstones.

Kyanite is also known as disthene and cyanite.

Kyanite is an excellent and extremely valuable stone that is also regarded as a great heat resistor, and that is why it is largely used as an important element in the industrial world. It is used in kiln factory, foundry moulds, refractory bricks, mortars, and refractory porcelains. Moreover, Kyanite is also used for brake shoes, cutting disks, and grinding wheels in the railroad and automobile industry. It is also used as an element in sinks and bathroom fixtures.

One the other hand the rare colorless variety of Kyanite is found at Machakos, Kenya. The finest quality Kyanites in combination with staurolite are found in the Tyrol Mountains of Switzerland.

The blue crystal energy of Kyanite helps in unblocking and balancing the chakras. Moreover the darker shades of blue Kyanite stimulates the power of truth, while the paler shades of blue carries in itself the power of equilibrium, flexibility, and relaxation.
