Blue, gray, white, green or black mineral has perfect cleavage according to the crystal surface [100], a white stripe coloring and a glass for pearl luster. The crystal system is triclinic, the average density is 3.61 and the hardness is from 4 to 7. Kyanite is neither magnetic nor radioactive. The name of the mineral kyanite is derived from the Greek word Kyanos that "blue" means. Kyanite mineral is a very common as a part of many rocks. It is partly for in metamorphosed sedimentary rocks. It is also, along with the other aluminum silicates, sillimanite and andalusite a mineral indicative for the depth and temperature at which a rock has undergone transformation. Kyanite is usually stable at temperatures below 650 ° Celsius and at pressures higher than 0.3 GPa (giga pascal). The pressure and temperature are related so that at high pressure (0.6 GPa) has a higher temperature (600 ° C) is necessary to be formed from kyanite sillimanite. At pressures below 0.3 GPa is correct andalusite stable aluminum. Kyanites of gem quality are found in India, in the gemstone marketing creations in Myanmar and Korea. In the United States are kyanieten recovered in California, Tennessee, Georgia, New Hampshire, and North Carolina.
