This polished obelisk of blue kyanite, an uncommon mineral, nearly weighs a pound, measuring in at 414g (0.915lb).
It stands at 4.75 inches and is 1.44 inches wide and looks especially beautiful and shimmery in person.
It has stunning silver-blue flashes on all 4 sides and beautiful painteresque formations. These formations have sillimanite, small bits of andalusite, quartz, and other mineral inclusions, which commonly occur with kyanite. Various shades of blue kyanite are extremely popular, but kyanite also (less often) comes in green, white, orange and black.
Blue kyanite is a stone that is highly associated with dreams, intuition, perception and communication. It is said to aid in dream recall, lucid dreaming, dream interpretation, nature, connections, expression, awareness expansion and deep insight development.
It is aligned with the throat and third eye chakras, the planets Mercury and Neptune, the zodiac signs of Pisces and Gemini and the elements of water and wind.
Interestingly enough, to many, the detailed formations of the stone visually represent the motion of water and wind working together in harmony.
This is especially a great stone for Cancers with an Aquarius rising, lovers of wind and water, and those with an affinity and attachment to the orisha, Yemaya.
