Kyanite is a form of silicate mineral and is one of the trade names for blue gems. It is often found in volcanic regions and has a variety of colors, depending on where it’s found. Kyanite can be found in many colors: black, grey, brownish-yellow, and blue. Kyanite derives its name from the Greek word “kyanos,” which means deep blue color. Kyanite is a member of the amorphous silicate group and has a Mohs hardness of 9.
Kyanite occurs as large crystals, needles, and platelets in the form of encrustations or crusts. Kyanite is formed by hydrothermal processes in hot fluids and was produced in this way as early as 3 to 1 billion years ago. Later, kyanite was formed by crystal growth from solution, with mineral precipitation from hot magma.
