One of the most interesting of crystals is Kyanite, which consists of multiple layers of very thin, flat blades that, when viewed from the side, resemble the pages of a book. Another interesting feature is that Kyanite has two distinct hardness ratings - when scratched on the parallel, its hardness is 4.5; when scratched on the perpendicular axis, the hardness is 6.5. The most popular color of Kyanite is blue, but it may also be black, gray, green or orange.

Kyanite aligns all of the chakras, and can be used to open them as well. It also aligns all layers of the aura. This makes Kyanite an excellent choice for any type of balance or energy work.

Kyanite transmits and amplifies high-frequency energies, making it a great stone for attunements and meditation. Kyanite brings a calming, tranquilizing energy to the body. Kyanite clears and calms you in preparation for meditation, and assists in receiving intuitive and psychic thoughts, as well as dream recall. Kyanite restores Qi (or Ki) to the physical body, and balances yin/yang energies.

Please Note: Although Kyanite may not need clearing/cleansing as often as most crystals, we suggest clearing your Kyanite as often as is needed, based on:

  1. The amount of use it gets (how hard your crystal is working for you) and
  2. The amount of energy that your crystal has been exposed to over a period of time.

When clearing your crystals, always make sure that your intent is clearly stated, so the crystal knows that it is being given some time off and needs to recharge itself. For more information see this article: How to Clear/Clean Any of Your Crystals.

  I am really happy already and I just sighed up about half an hour ago. I had black kyanite or water for 5 days. I just did a little research on their website and found out that black kyanite has aluminum and also the hardest scale is 4.5. I am glad that I did not drink it. I also have black tourmaline to look at. I am really impressed with the information here.  (Submitted by: Boderek on April 12, 2019)
