'Kyanite is typically a blue aluminosilicate mineral, usually found in aluminium-rich metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock. Kyanite in metamorphic rocks generally indicates pressures higher than four kilobars. This is a unique range of specimens from Zimbabwe which have variable inclusions with Kyanite crystals exposed in stunning green Fuchsite. This is a very rare mineral batch from a very inaccessible region of Africa. The crystals have variable gemmy clarity with minor traces of Mica in association. A very nice and soft Fuchsite matrix which can be worked off to have better exposure. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.
