This kyanite specimen has a good deal of "character", and by that I mean that it displays fairly well with good contrast and multiple jutting angles. The kyanite is blue and transparent, with the deeper color attributable to better clarity. It is a good blue color, some of which is whitish but other crystals are quite blue, and a few small ones are nearly colorless and very transparent, although all of the crystals exhibit striations and internal fractures running the length of the crystals. The white mineral adding contrast is quartz.
