Kyanite Harts Ranges NT


A group of 3 excellent specimens of Kyanite, found in the mineral-rich Harts Range of the Northern Territory.

Its name comes from 'Cyan' blue. A beautiful translucent mineral, as a raw material, it is used in the manufacture of ceramics and is an important index mineral used by geologists to trace metamorphic zones - a mineral-rich zone of bedrock.

In these specimens, the common sprays of bladed crystals are visible. Valued for its perfect cleavage planes and distinct pearly lustre, this group of small elegant specimens are an excellent addition to any minerals collection.
