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.

Each crystal that comes out of the ground is unique in its own way, you will never find two the same, this does mean that colours, shapes and sizes vary and by nature crystals do have imperfections.
