Rose Cut gorgeous Moss Kyanite cristals that are pure beauty and ready to feature in your next jewelry piece.
WHAT IS MOSS KYANITE:
This attractive blue mineral is an aluminum silicate that often appears as large, well-formed bladed crystals, making it a popular material for gemological collectors and jewelry makers alike.
Kyanite has an almost fibrous appearance, especially as stones are often left rough to prevent stone loss during polishing.
This internal structure can encourage chatoyancy (the cat's eye effect), yet it prevents most asterism from forming in kyanite, even when cut into smooth cabochon forms.
Kyanite rarely exhibits a single shade of color; color often shows as areas, zones or blotches for a dramatic appearance.
For Moss Kyanite small specs of Iron grow within the gemstone and appear as moss-like flecks, hence the name of this beautiful, unusual rich, blue-hued gem.
