rough kyanite

A Stone for Balance


Kyanite isn't mentioned in more than two of the crystal books in my large collection. One of these books is a geological guide to crystals, gems, and minerals; the other wasn't published until long after I first acquired a piece of kyanite. The lack of information has allowed me to explore kyanite without preconceived notions, and I've enjoyed making discoveries about this remarkable stone.

Its appearance is beautiful and unusual. It naturally forms in very flat blades made up of very thin mica-like layers. It predominantly occurs in a medium blue color with white streaks, although it can be green, yellow, and other colors, and it's often translucent. and always shiny.

According to the chakra system of colors kyanite should be placed either on the throat area or on the third eye (between and slightly above the other two), and I've found the third eye position especially valuable.

Overall, I find its energy to be very calming mentally. I've discovered that when I'm caught up in one of my worry loops placing kyanite on my forehead (whether or not I'm meditating) helps me to move beyond the loop. It reminds me that everything which happens is for a purpose, and that I am ultimately in charge. In the course of these gentle reminders it often brings to surface beliefs which I have accepted as fact.

The comments in the one book I have which talks about kyanite (Love Is In The Earth, by Melody, now out of print), states that this stone never needs to be cleaned or cleared, i.e., it doesn't retain negative vibrations.

She also remarks that it's helpful in chakra balance, in dispelling anger and frustration, (thus encouraging one to persevere in difficult tasks), and - confirming my own experiences - that it helps to facilitate mental clarity and dissolves confusions arising from emotional, intellectual, and spiritual issues.

If you have difficulty in meditating kyanite is one of the best stones to use. Its ability to quiet the mind is virtually unequaled.
