These high quality 6mm round blue kyanite gemstone beads are more transparent and a little richer in color with less of the gray that is seen in lower quality kyanite beads. The color is beautifully consistent with lots of schiller. I've taken a few photographs under different lighting conditions so you can see the richness of color.
Kyanite is classified as a brittle stone and it is softer along the grain than across it. Treat it gently just as you would treat pearls.
If you don't need a full strand, you can also buy single kyanite beads.
