Kyanite is an aluminum silicate of an elongated, flat, blade-like formation. Kyanite in metamorphic rocks generally indicates pressures higher than four kilobars. It is commonly found in quartz. Although potentially stable at lower pressure and low temperature, the activity of water is usually high enough under such conditions that it is replaced by hydrous aluminosilicates such as muscovite, pyrophyllite, or kaolinite. Kyanite is also known as disthene, rhaeticite and cyanite.
Kyanite is a member of the aluminosilicate series, which also includes the polymorph andalusite and the polymorph sillimanite. Kyanite is strongly anisotropic, in that its hardness varies depending on its crystallographic direction. In kyanite, this anisotropism can be considered an identifying characteristic.
It ranges in color, the most common metaphysical colors being blue, including indigo, green and black, but also can be found in white, pink, yellow, orange, and grey.
Kyanite: Meanings, Benefits and Properties
The frequency of Kyanite is connected to all of the chakras. The blue has a strong connection to the third eye chakra, the green to the heart chakra, and the black to the base and Earth Star whilst orange connects to the sacral chakra.
This is a crystal of connection by building energetic bridges through the dimensions. It helps with energy blocks within one’s energy fields by forming new energetic pathways which will allow for energy to flow unhindered.
Due to the way the energy of this crystal can build bridges and form new energetic pathways, it can aid with the healing of broken bones, physical traumas caused through surgery, or trauma caused by strokes.

Blue Kyanite carries high vibrational energy which allows for a rapid transfer of energy. It activates the third eye chakra bringing forth psychic abilities and allowing knowledge and wisdom to be transferred from the higher dimensions into one’s consciousness.
Indigo Kyanite also stimulates the third eye chakra allowing for enhanced psychic ability and inner vision so that the true nature of a situation can be observed and acted upon with integrity.
Green Kyanite connects to the heart chakra allowing one to “feel” and act with heart-centered consciousness. It builds a bridge so one can connect to nature and be in balance with it. It thus allows for the connection to Nature’s Spirits and Devas.
Black Kyanite connects to the base and Earth Star chakras helping one to be grounded. It also clears blocked energy by removing any imbalances that exist within one’s energetic fields and thus helps to energize and raise one’s vibrations.
Orange Kyanite connects to the sacral chakra so that one can freely express one’s creativity and sexuality.
