Kyanite is a metamorphic mineral that most often forms from the high pressure alteration of clay-rich sedimentary rocks. Kyanite's typical habit is a bladed crystal although it sometimes occurs as radiating masses of crystals.

The name Kyanite comes from the Greek word kyanos which means blue. Kyanite has a unique characteristic in that it has a wide variation in hardness in the same crystal face. The hardness of kyanite is approximately 4.5 when scratched parallel to the long axis of the crystal and approximately 6.5 when scratched perpendicular to or across the long axis.

Kyanite is a stone that cannot be left submersed in water as it will dissolve as it is a fragile stone. Kyanite is a refractory material and it has a high melting point, low thermal conductance, and maintains its strength up to about 1100 degrees celsius. Kyanite is a polymorph with two other minerals: andalusite and sillimanite. A polymorph is a mineral that shares the same chemistry but a different crystal structure with another, or other, minerals.
