These low-cost 8mm round kyanite beads are well shaped, drilled and polished but have some of the yellow and dark gray of lower quality kyanite, thus the AB grade. They are semi-opaque to translucent and exhibit the optical effect known as schiller.
Kyanite is named after the Greek word kyanos, which means blue. Handle kyanite with care as it tends to be brittle.
