These darling little high quality kyanite beads have a consistent, translucent medium blue. They do not, however, exhibit the schiller that the round beads do. The 6x6mm size is approximate. The thickness of the beads runs anywhere from about 2.75mm to 3.65mm.
Kyanite is considered a brittle stone with directional hardness, meaning it is softer "along the grain" than across it. Treat it gently just as you would treat pearls.
