Rock Week Day 2 - Kyanite

~*{Blue Storm Earrings $49 at Kasiablue}*~
For day two of rock week, I have picked one of my absolute all time favorite stones...Kyanite.  I fell in love with kyanite about 3 years ago when I started to make jewelry for myself and went to my very first gem show.  Not knowing the ins and outs of what to buy (and what was a good value or too expensive), I decided to buy the things that innately drew me to them.  Needless to say, our love affair began that very day.
A little about kyanite the stone:
Kyanite can range in color from vivid sapphire blue to a dark and muddy brown grey.  It's geological fromation is that of long and flat, bladelike crystals that look like layered sheets of shimmering paper.  In fact, kyanite is not a very hard stone when cut along its parallell sheets, making it sometimes too brittle to be used for jewelry.  Only when it is cut against it's vertical axis does it increase in hardness...a unique and important little tidbit that I will talk about later.  It's element is storm and aligns itself with all chakras, with special emphasis on the Third Eye (6th) and Crown/Head/Heart (7th).
In the metaphysical sense, kyanite is classicly used in healing and releasing old patterns that no longer serve us.  It is one of the only stones that allows for engergy to flow in and out of itself, i.e. does not hold on to energy (due to its two levels of hardness that I mentioned above) allowing the wearer to cleanse and align all of their chakras.  Kyanite is optimal to link the astral and physical body bringing the wearer to a full and connected awareness in all levels of consciousness...giving the wearer clear download of information in any state.  That's Powerful! 
Kyanite does come in a variety of colrs and each variation is used for a specific purpose. 
Blue: for lucid dreaming and clearing energy blockage/aligning the chakras.
Green: connects you to the truth in you heart and lends a stabilizing effect to one's natural surroundings bringing forth truth and sincerity.
Black: clears energy blockages in any chakra, balances the system and helps to bring forth past lives.
Indigo (my favorite): Important for lucid dreaming and astral travel.  Indigo is the most energetic of all the colors, helping one to get to the truth of a matter and dispelling uncertainty, letting one have clear vision to attain their dreams and aspirations.
I hope that you have enjoyed today's installment.  Tomorrow we will talk about a new found friend...Rutilated Quartz!

Kyanite is not just beautiful-but, it would seem, essential. Especially the indigo. I love the look of rutilated quartz-and also the word 'rutilated' so I am looking forward to reading about it!

Kasia, I am currently working with the colors indigo and gold. Do you have anything in these colors? I'd love to take a look.
