Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q. Why it is difficult to cut Kyanite?

A. It has variability of hardness and perfect cleavage, meaning the stone may split with a single hard knock. Being brittle in nature, it is difficult to cut and shape. Cutters need to be aware of the cleavage when shaping the stone to avoid it fracturing.

 

Q. Why does kyanite have different hardness?

A. Kyanite has a bladed habit, meaning that the crystals of kyanite in their natural state are elongated and flattened like a blade of grass. Kyanite has a dual hardness on the Mohs scale. With the hardness of 4.5 to 5.5, this crystal is relatively soft when cut parallel to the long axis, while on the shorter side, the hardness is 6 to 7.

 

Q. How to take care of this gemstone?

A. The best way to care for Kyanite is through the standard gem and jewelry care. Clean with a soft-bristled brush, lukewarm soapy water, and dry with a soft cloth. Avoid ultrasonic cleaners, steam cleaners, heat, and harsh chemicals as these can damage the appearance of the gem.
