A transparent, glassy single crystal of Kyanite on a small matrix of Quartz. Perfect, complete and very lustrous, this slender crystal comes from a well known Pegmatite and is in remarkable, undamaged condition. With even a weak backlight this glows a rich blue and looks fine from any angle. Kyanite is not a rare mineral but this quality is very uncommon and the proportions are very elegant.

Kyanite crystals with Inky blue color with fine luster. Both crystals on the Quartz matrix are doubly terminated, in great condition with no damage. The larger crystal is a cluster of individual blades that start as a single prism and diverge to many separate sheaves all of which are terminated. Translucent and in a few spots transparent, this is a choice specimen of rich blue color. Kyanite is not a rare mineral but good free standing esthetic crystals are quite scarce.
