The mineral Kyanite forms during the metamorphism of sedimentary rocks from the high-pressure alteration of clay minerals. Kyanite is a bladed crystal, but sometimes forms in a mass of crystals and is associated with other metamorphic minerals like corundum, garnet, and staurolite. It is a unique crystal that has two Mohs hardness measurements. Along the long side, Kyanite measures 4.5-5 on the Mohs scale while it measures 6.5-7 on the short side. Kyanite is found worldwide, including in Connecticut, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia in the US. As a gemstone, Kyanite lends itself to flat beads in jewelry. A skilled cutter can shape it into a cabochon or cut it faceted.
