Black kyanite , also known as black kyanite and black kyanite is a variety of kyanite that is black in color.

What is black kyanite?

Kyanite is a mineral species composed of potassium aluminum silicate, with a chemical formula Al2SiO5. Black kyanite is quite rare and can be found in some high temperature deposits, such as areas of regional metamorphism . It owes its black color to the presence of small amounts of impurities, such as carbon, iron or titanium which can be incorporated into the crystal structure of kyanite.

Where do you find black kyanite?

The best-known black kyanite deposits are found in India, Nepal, Burma, Sri Lanka, Brazil, Australia, and the United States (especially California and Virginia).

However, it is important to note that black kyanite is quite rare and difficult to find, making it quite an expensive gemstone. Additionally, it can be difficult to distinguish black kyanite from other types of black stones like black onyx , black tourmaline, and black spinel , which are more common and more affordable.

It is therefore important to ensure the authenticity of the stone and its origin before buying it.

What does black kyanite look like?

Black Kyanite has an intense black color and can be translucent to opaque. It is generally translucent when the stone is small and opaque when the stone is large. She has a conchoidal fracture, which means she has a smooth rounded broken surface. Black Kyanite is a hard stone and has a hardness of 6 to 7 on the Mohs scale, which makes it quite resistant to scratches and damage.

Black Kyanite has a hexagonal columnar crystal structure, which gives it a unique appearance . Black Kyanite crystals can be small to large in size but larger crystals are often found in the rarest deposits. Black Kyanite crystals can have an irregular shape, or a more regular shape like elongated prisms.

Either way, black kyanite is a very distinctive and beautiful stone.
