Black Kyanite

 

Origin: South America, Brazil, Minas Gerais, Minas Novas, Ribeirão da Folha

 

Kyanite is a silicate mineral, commonly found in aluminium-rich metamorphic pegmatites and sedimentary rock. This mineral was named in 1789 by Abraham Gottlieb Werner, from the Greek word "kyanos", meaning "blue".

This interesting black Kyanite has unusual fan like crystal structures, very different to more typical Kyanite.
