Kyanite, also known as disthene, rhaeticite, or cyanite, is a typically blue silicate mineral, commonly found in aluminium-rich metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock. It is a unique mineral in that it has a wide variation of hardness in the same crystal, depending on its orientation.
Kyanite is valuable in the industrial world for heat resistance, used in high refractory porcelain, refractory bricks, mortars, kiln furniture, and foundry molds. It is also used in electronics, insulators, and the production of some types of spark plugs.
In the metaphysical realm, Kyanite is known for its ability to bring all of the chakras into alignment. It provides balance of yin-yang energy and dispels blockages, moving energy gently through the physical body. Its high frequency naturally lifts the spirits and overcomes feelings of anxiety, stress, and depression.
Kyanite can also be used to enhance psychic abilities, promote lucid dreaming, and encourage deep states of meditation. It is a stone of connection, opening the mind centers, enhancing telepathic and psychic abilities, and bridging gaps in communication.
This stone does not hold negativity, meaning it never needs cleansing. It's an excellent stone for attunements and meditation. Kyanite aligns all chakras automatically and immediately, and it's an excellent stone for energy work as it creates pathways where energy can flow smoothly.
