Natural Medium to Large Blue Kyanite In Matrix Specimen x 1 From Karoi, Zimbabwe

R 632.00 ZAR
' 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 stunning range of specimens from Zimbabwe which have variable inclusions with Kyanite crystals exposed in quartzite like matrix and often associated to small pyrope garnets in the matrix, but not in all instances. This is a very rare mineral batch from a very inaccessible region of Africa. The crystals have variable gemmy clarity. A very nice and fairly soft fragile matrix. Price is grade dependent. Items are as shown.
