Item Description

These specimens are arguably the finest and most recognized examples of Kyanite in the world. They are beloved for the large crystals and supreme aesthetic form. This piece hosts several large, sharp, translucent, lovely blue color, prismatic Kyanite crystals measuring up to 9.5 cm long aesthetically sitting on and included inside of slightly smoky colored Quartz from the famous Barra de Salinas District in Brazil. The beautiful blue color of the crystals, along with the relative gemminess and good luster makes the piece a showy, eye-catching, hand-sized, cabinet sized display specimen. Valued at $1,950 retail for the size, quality and aesthetics.
