Crystal Information

Kyanite comes in a few different colors, but they all share some of the same properties. The mineral itself goes by a few different names, cyanite, rhaeticite, and disthene which in Greek means ‘twice + force’; and this is due to this mineral having two different hardness measurements depending on if you measure it lengthwise or across the width of the mineral. When we think of how a mineral harnesses energy, it is always good to look at the physical properties of the mineral in question. This crystal forms in thin blades or what is referred to as ‘radiating masses’, this is when it looks like crystal needles are shooting in many directions from one central location. Kyanite on an energetic level operates very similarly to how it appears visually.

Regardless of the color, this mineral applies its energy from two angles, no matter the application; it aggressively clears and gently harmonizes. Just as the mineral itself looks as though it could slice or cut; the energy of kyanite works to instantly align all energy centers, cutting through any blockages that may be present. Kyanite is a high vibrational crystal that works to raise vibrations and strengthen the entire energetic system. It is one of the premier crystals to assist with ‘cutting cords’. Assisting us in removing all that no longer serves our greatest good, all colors of kyanite work to remove stagnant, blocked, or low vibrational energy from our field as well as helping us to release negative thoughts and behavior patterns. 

Blue kyanite resonates best with the throat chakra but brings a fresh stabilizing energy to the entire system. Bringing our thoughts and feelings into alignment; this color assists with communication, helping us to articulate our truest self in a way that will be understood. Helping us to connect with our inner guidance, blue kyanite is a wonderful meditation aid as it promotes an understanding of ourselves and the world around us. It provides calming energy that allows us to be still even during the most chaotic moments. Working to raise our vibrations, this color of kyanite is one of the most useful companion crystals for any healer or energy worker as well as those who perform readings for others using their clair-senses and other “spiritual abilities”; as it provides clarity and understanding of communication while reinforcing our natural energetic shield so that we remain protected from outside energy.
