Kyanite is a fairly available gemstone but top quality Kyanite are hard to find. Therefore, one needs to consider factors like its origin, color, clarity and cut to find the best piece within the considered budget. When buying a Kyanite gemstone, one must always look for high transparency, minimum inclusions, depth in color and brilliance in luster.
Origin- Gem quality Kyanite rough stone comes from the mining locations of Australia, Brazil, Austria, Kenya, India (Orissa- Blue-green Kyanite stone). Myanmar (Burma), Cambodia, Nepal, Russia, Zimbabwe, Serbia, Switzerland, Tanzania (Orange Kyanite) and the USA. In the international gem market, Nepalese Kyanite is hugely popular for its exceptional blue color and high transparency.
Color- Kyanite color range from various shades of blue to colorless, white, orange, green, indigo, yellow, black and grey. The most popular and highly valued form is the deep blue Kyanite. Apart from the hue, the tone and saturation also affect the quality of a Kyanite gemstone. Because of some geographical factors, Kyanites usually have inconsistent color (called color zoning which means the stone may display multiple shades of blue in a single gemstone) along with white streaks and blotches. The top-quality deep sapphire blue, Paraiba blue and the royal blue Kyanites are quite rare and considered quite precious.
Clarity- In terms of clarity, Kyanite gemstones are transparent to translucent in appearance with few inclusions. Almost all Kyanites stones available in the market have some visible, internal inclusions that lend a slight fibrous look. Therefore, Kyanite gems with minimum visible inclusions, high transparency and vitreous luster are considered to be of superior quality.
Cut- The cutting style also says a lot about the Kyanite gem’s quality. Raw Kyanite with good transparency is often faceted into the beautiful oval, round and pear or heart-shaped gems. In contrast, the highly included Kyanite loose gemstones with strong color zoning are usually shaped as cabochons (polished, non-faceted gems) which are relatively less valuable.
Kyanite is a brilliant gemstone from the Silicate mineral that is found in a variety of colors like blue, green, yellow, grey, orange, green and black. Each Kyanite color has its own beauty and spiritual significance, however the Blue Kyanite stone is exclusively popular for its extravagant charm and a strong metaphysical significance. The top quality Blue Kyanite may appear akin to the precious Blue Sapphire and is therefore recommended as its budget-friendly alternative for jewelry and astrological purposes. The other shaded such as Green Kyanite, Orange Kyanite, Indigo Kyanite and Black Kyanite are mainly worn for healing, protection and ornamentation.
