These top quality 8mm round blue kyanite beads are exquisite. The difference between these and lower grades is quite subtle. The blue coloring and translucency in both the individual beads and the strand are more uniform. Deep, consistent blues and lots of schiller that often exhibits the cat's eye effect. I've taken several photographs indoors and outside in the sun.
Because of kyanite's brittleness and directional hardness, treat it with the same care you would give to pearls.
If you don't need a full strand, you can buy single blue kyanite beads.
