Chromium Kyanite Average 1.10ct 8x6mm Pear Shape. Gemstone Mined And Cut In India.
Until recently, facet-grade kyanite was rare. While fibrous, translucent kyanite from various locales was well known in the mineral world, it barely registered among gemologists. It was an exciting discovery in Orissa, India in 2013 that gave us a new variety of beautiful, transparent kyanite. Called chromium kyanite due to trace amounts of the element chromium, it is extremely rare in occurrence and, to date, Orissa is the only known source. Naturally teal in color and unenhanced, chromium kyanite owes its coloring not only to its chromium content, but also the presence of vanadium, an elemental mix not often seen in nature. And unlike most kyanite varieties, this amazing gem is free from color zoning, giving you a crystalline gem unlike any other. We invite you to discover the exotic beauty of chromium kyanite today!
