Kyanite from Barra de Salinas, Coronel Murta, Minas Gerais, Brazil. This material deserves the title of "mineral classic" for its long running production, and defining quality. But the good material has always been a little tricky to get. This beautiful sample upholds the popular and time honored quality, with its striking long blue blades of shimmering silvery luster. The longest blade is just under 14 cms. in length, and several blades are quite aesthetically placed in a matrix of semi-translucent quartz, making this a fine display specimen.
