Kyanite Freeform Pendant

Kyanite, another stone new to me for wire wrapping. Kyanite ranges from a silvery blue to a deeper color and has a great deal of chatoyance. This petite stone, though a mere 19mm in length, is simply gorgeous. I have shied away from wrapping them due to their small size, however, once the pendant was completed, I've decided to create more of them. This is that perfect tiny pendant to wear at the hollow of the neck. A 1mm snake chain would look wonderful, but perhaps a leather cord is your preference. (I do have a range of chains and cords available.) I've wrapped this cabochon in 22 gauge square sterling wire and given it a tailored topper so as not to overwhelm the piece. I hope it will become your favorite as it has mine.

Treat someone special to this one-of-a-kind gift or buy it for yourself.

The pendant measures 1 1/4" from top of bail and is 5/8" wide.

Note: Kyanite, whose name derives from the Greek word kuanos sometimes referred to as "kyanos", meaning deep blue, is a typically blue aluminum silicate mineral, commonly found in aluminium-rich metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock. It has a transparent to translucent look which is generally vitreous and has a bladed habit. It belongs to the chemical class of nesosilicates and its streak is clear or white. Kyanite belongs to the triclinic crystal system. A unique characteristic of kyanite is its two different hardnesses according to the direction of the crystal (4 and 6). Kyanite may be found in Switzerland, Kenya, the Urals and New England.

Kyanite's metaphysical properties are manifest. It is said to open and clear the body's communication centers. For channeling or meditation purposes it works best when it is worn near the throat chakra. Kyanite never needs to be cleaned or charged because it is self-caring, self-sustaining. It carries a very "light" energy that attracts light beings. It is useful in strengthening the immune system.

Enjoy this unique piece of hand-crafted jewelry.
