Kyanite mineral - You can buy these samples

Kyanite is a mineral characteristic of metamorphic rocks with a high content of alumina. Also, but much less frequently, it can be present both in igneous rocks and in hydrothermal formations. It has anisotropy of hardness: its hardness is 4.5 along the crystal, and 6.5 across it. As a rule, kyanite crystals are opaque, but sometimes they can have a "cat's eye" effect.

You can see kyanite stone for sale and buy it in the Minerals of Russia online store.
