Kyanite History Mythology Information: Kyanite did not receive its name until the eighteenth century due to the fact that up until then most blue crystal/stones were all put in the same category.  So even though Kyanite has been used and around for a long time there are no existing traditions as to its use. 

Kyanite comes in a range of different colours, with the most common being Blue, then Black Fans, then Green and Ocean Blades, then Orange Blade.  Black Kyanite fans are very regularly coated with a range of different coating: Dichronic, Aluminium, and a titanium mix.

Kyanite Metaphysical Healing Properties Information:  Kyanite is a fantastic stone in that it never needs to be cleansed as it does not hold negative energy.  Blue Kyanite energy works amazingly on your Throat Chakra in order to clear any blockages and encourages you to speak your truth, cutting any fear that you are holding and releasing you to mover forward in a productive way.  Kyanite helps to restore your Qi (energy) to your physical body and organs by aligning the pathways through the meridians and Chakras.  It is a very light and calming stone to use that brings through a peace.  Affirmation: I speak my meaning clearly and am open to receive higher information.
