I love the texture and character of raw stones. These kyanite slices have a cool hexigonal shape and are a bit rough around the edges. The color is a deep denim blue which goes with everything just like your favorite jeans.Measures 1 1/2". Handmade Shepherd hook earwires. Sterling silver, which has been oxidized and hand polished for an antique finish.
About Kyanite: The name Kyanite derives from the Greek word kyanos, meaning blue. Kyanite has a deep silvery blue similar to blue sapphire at its best. Kyanite is an interesting gem that was discovered during the nineteenth century. Kyanite is found in mountainous regions in the United States (Montana and North Carolina), Switzerland, Brazil and Myanmar. It was once believed that a kyanite suspended from a human hair could follow the earth's magnetic force. Early travelers sometimes used it as a compass when exploring unknown territories.
