These three Kyanite are as unique as they are lovely. Each one is a different shade of kyanite blue. The larger of the three fits comfortably in ones palm. The curve located on one of the sides makes him a perfect stone to hold during meditation. The smaller two's sizes make them great pocket stones. Pocket stones are stones one can carry in a pocket and rub throughout the day. (If used as pocket stones please be mindful of the other items in your pocket as they can be broken by harder objects) The deep blue hues also make these little ones fabulous for jewelry designs.
About Kyanite: Kyanite derives its name from the Greek word kuanos also referred to as "kyanos", meaning deep blue. Kyanite specimens have a variable hardness. The long crystals have a Mohs hardness of about 4.5 to 5 if tested parallel to the length of a crystal and a hardness of 6.5 to 7 if tested across the short dimension of a crystal. The mineral was once commonly called "disthene" which means "two strengths".
The intensely different shades of blue, or even multiple shades with color zoning in a single crystal is beautiful. The color of Kyanite, combined with its well-formed crystals, make this mineral appreciated and admired.
In Meditation and Healing: This stone facilitates meditation. Blue Kyanite aligns all of the chakras, clears the meridian pathways and fortifies the subtile bodies making it quite valuable to use at the beginning of meditation. Kyanite is known as a stone of attunement. It is good for communication, mental awareness and stimulates psychic awareness. Excellent when used for lucid dreaming and dream recall. "It restores Qi to the physical body and promotes a calming effect to the whole being. With its blue and indigo energies, Kyanite is particularly stimulating to the Throat and Third Eye Chakras, expanding communication and psychic awareness on all levels." [Melody, 363-364]
The Throat Chakra is the "voice" of the body. One of its functions is to be a pressure valve that allows the energy from the other chakras to be expressed. If it is blocked, or out of balance, it can affect our physical and emotional health as well as affect all of our other chakras. When the throat chakra is in balance and flowing freely, it allows for the expression of our truth, thoughts and feelings. We are able to communicate our ideas, beliefs, and emotions, honestly and share our personal truth with the world. We become reconnected with the natural rhythm and flow of the vital life energies that govern our bodies and emotions. The energy that springs upward from the lower chakras can continue its path enabling free expression and natural release. The beautiful shades of blue also provide a calming of the mind and thoughts.
