Kyanite on Quartz
Barra do Salinas Mining District, Coronel Murta
Minas Gerais, Brazil
9 x 6.4 x 2.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $800
new year 2021

Intense bright blue crystals of Kyanite are clinging to a small matrix of Quartz and Kyanite. These crystals are transparent to translucent, they glow an intense blue with just a little backlight. The specimen is shown with a mild backlight in these photos. In excellent condition these have sharp terminations and some slight color zoning. Kyanite is not a rare mineral and quite a lot comes from Brazil, but such fine, complete undamaged crystals that are so well-positioned are quite rare. Far better impact in person, a very choice Kyanite from the find a few years ago at Barra do Salinas in Minas Gerais, Brazil.
