AMETHYST, MAGIC, LEGENDS and CURIOSITIES

  • October 15, 2018
  • 0 Comments

The attribution of the magical object of the amethysts began at the same moment that a human being found one; we can imagine his fascination with an object of such a beautiful color, which allows light to pass through it, which is cold at the touch of the hand and which nonetheless possesses the color of the magical violet fire. It is easy to guess, that from the first moment it was considered a special, valuable object that by its beauty could only bring good luck to whoever had it. And the best way to have it permanently would be wearing it, and so, in a simple way, it would be like the first jewels were born, in the form of company, amulet, talisman or fortune mineral. And this magical halo would forge stories and legends that have come and continue to expand, to this day.

Of all its legends, perhaps the most repeated is that related by Aristotle, who attributes to Bacchus, the god of wine, the creation indirectly, of the amethysts, for being persecuting a beautiful young woman who, faced with her harassment and attempted rape, He asked the goddess Artemis for help and she turned it into a vine of violet color, thus preventing it from being violated, (from which comes the word violet, non-violation).

Another form of this same legend is the one that tells that in fact Baco was drunk and persecuted a nymph, named Ametis (from where comes the word amethyst, which also means “not intoxicating”) which used its magical powers to become a beautiful crystal of completely transparent quartz and Baco was so distressed that I spilled the glass of wine that he had in his hand on this crystal, as an offering and an apology and that at that very moment, the crystalline quartz turned into a beautiful amethyst of the color of wine.

As a curiosity, there is a city in Brazil called Amethyst of the South, but this is not the curious thing, not even the obvious fact, by the name, that there are plenty of amethysts there; the curious thing is that the largest church in the town, is built with amethysts and even more curious that each inhabitant took at least one amethyst for its construction, so literally, its walls are lined with beautiful and twinkling amethysts; more than forty tons of amethysts.

Curious also the fact that both these Brazilian and the Uruguayan amethyst can reach more than a hundred million years.

AMETHYST: WHAT IT IS, HOW IT GROWS AND WHERE IT COMES FROM.

Amethyst is a quartz that grows in veins where the presence of ferrous oxide solutions are abundant, specifically a macrocrystalline variety of quartz, which owes its extraordinary color to its chemical composition, mainly iron (oligisto), calcium, boron, aluminum, magnesium and phosphorus among other alkaline components.

If an amethyst is subjected to a temperature higher than 300 / 400ºC, its violet color turns yellow (and it is sold as false citrino)…

With the contact of our skin, the amethyst is heated and its energy, its vibration expands. If we make two amethysts collide with each other, (being in the dark) we can observe that sparks of light jump: these two properties are called piezoelectricity and pyroelectricity, both properties of quartz.

Its energetic vibration is constant, and like all quartz, its energetic effect is balancing and harmonizing.

There are deposits of amethysts in almost all continents, but the most relevant are in: Brazil, South Africa, USA, India, Argentina, Uruguay, Russia and Madagascar. I wish you liked it and that throughout the articles that I will be uploading this week, you will fall in love even more with this extraordinary mineral.

AMETHYST, SACRED FIRE.

For the great majority of the lovers of the mineral kingdom, the amethyst represents the maximum expression of beauty, not only for its form but for the extensive and varied chromatic quality with which we can find it; from the most pale and beautiful lilac, to the deepest and most inspiring purple, the amethyst goes through the whole gamut of violet.

Also, among all the stones considered semiprecious, the amethyst is the one with the most tradition, antiquity, legends, uses and applications.

Zodiac, myth and legend of the Amethyst

The legend of the origin of the amethyst comes from the Greek myth. Dionisio, the god of intoxication, was angered one day by an insult from a human and swore revenge on the next mortal to cross his path. Violent tigers should carry out their desire. Amethyst, a beautiful single girl, on her way to pay homage to the goddess Diana, would become the victim. Diana transformed Amethyst to a pure crystalline quartz stature, to protect it from the brutal claws. Dionysus wept tears of wine, in remorse for his action at the sight of the beautiful statue. The god’s tears stained the purple quartz, creating the famous jewel.

Amethyst is the birthstone for those who were born in February or for the zodiac sign of Pisces.

In ancient times, as well as in the middle Ages, people believed that the cosmos was reflected in precious stones. The amethyst is assigned to the planet Neptune. The esoteric movement rekindled the old belief and the jewelry industry made it another marketing tool, to promote certain gems. The healing powers of gems remain a controversial issue, but they are mentioned for centuries by healers, shamans and medicine men. Whether they are facts or a placebo effect does not matter, if it helps. It is safest to use the stone in contact with the skin in the problematic part of the body. Amethyst is said to be helpful for headaches, back pain and pancreas.

Amethysts Where forms Uses Curiosities

Amethyst:

It is a microcrystalline variety of quartz. Its characteristic violet color can be more or less intense, depending on the amount of iron (Fe + 3) it contains. It can be colored by zones with transparent or yellow quartz. The tips are usually darker or degrade to the colorless quartz.

Amethyst and its uses:

Amethyst: Meaning, properties, uses, geodes, magical properties, healing properties, benefits, superset amethyst, vibration energy, how it grows and where it comes from, mother earth medicine, personal use.

AMETHYST SUPERSIETE:

This spectacular amethyst is called Super 7 because it has seven qualities in itself. It will probably be a very old mineral but it has recently been discovered by the crystal therapy expert Melody. We can find it in its laminated form since this is the best way to appreciate its seven qualities, related to its formation: amethyst quartz, smoky quartz, transparent quartz, cacoxenite, rutile, lepidocrite and goethite.

It is a personal mineral of meditation although it can be used for crystal healing by placing it on the heart chakra for its powerful unifying energy: it balances the energy of all the chakras. Placed on the area of ​​the thymus gland increases the resistance of the immune system.

Another of its properties is to open the cellular memory providing courage in the event that the person feels fear of their healing and / or channeling abilities. It is also used by holistic therapists to repair the auric lattice of their patients.

Vibrationally, the energy of the superset amethyst balances the possible imbalances that could be in each of our farms, either by excess or by defect; the blocks are balanced. The ideal would be to have 7 supersite amethysts to place one in the center of each farm and self-perform a daily treatment for several days in a row and then go to space to finish as a maintenance treatment a month, in a relaxed state, while listening to meditation music for 15/20 minutes. In this way the vital centers are revitalized, the thoughts, ideas and creativity are reinforced and balanced, and the possible wounds of the heart are understood and dismissed, neutralizing.

There is an increase in personal confidence, self-esteem and creativity. A wonder the help that Mother Nature offers us with this special amethyst so powerful.

AMATISTAS: PERSONAL USE.

Carved, natural, in druse, geode, boulder, and jewel … How would it be better on a personal level? As defined in my previous article, to integrate the vibration of a chosen mineral, in this case, the amethyst, the ideal is to relate to it in a triple way: an amethyst in direct contact with the skin, either as a pendant or in a pocket, having another amethyst, which can be in pebble, which we will use to “carry” with its vibration the water of a glass (which we will leave submerged in the water throughout the night and which we will ingest when we get up, or inside the bottle of mineral water from which we will be drinking throughout the day) and another amethyst more, of a larger size, ideally flat (so that it does not bother us or risk damaging us with its sharp edges ), to place it under the pillow.

This self-treatment will be maintained for several weeks in a row and we will take personal notes of the changes we are observing.

Of course, this self-treatment does not replace a crystal therapy treatment performed by a holistic therapist, but rather it is a maintenance supplement to reinforce the health results we intend to obtain.

AMATISTAS: MEDICINE of MOTHER EARTH.

The use of amethyst in natural, vibration and holistic therapies, for its crystallotherapeutic value, (treatment with the imposition of minerals on the body of a patient placing them through aesthetically symmetric configurations on their vital centers -chacras- and / or around their bio energy field -Aura-, as well as in hands and feet) is proven effective as a natural medicine (medicine, it is a word of shamanic origin, “man or woman medicine” is one that uses, as tools of healing, those offered by Pachamama – the Earth-, to return to recover the lost health of both the body and the feeling or the psyche), covers a host of applications, among them we can mention:

Agates: its different forms

  • October 15, 2018

Agate listed: the lines that form its drawing go in accordance with the border that delimits its exterior. They are the most common to find along with those of circular drawings (Agates almost everything about them).

Walled agate: the interior drawing, instead of forming rounded circles, forms peaked lines as if it were a fortification. This type of cutting agate is special for crimping it in the form of a pendant since it emits an energetic quality of protection as a shield over the area of ​​the body where it is located (chakra of the heart or of the solar plexus).

Circular agate: the drawings inside it form concentric circles. They are the most requested to apply in face therapy for their harmonizing energy and concentrating capacity of positive vibrations on the area of ​​the body where it is located. This type of cut agate, is the most valued to be carved in a circular way and make the most appreciated pendants for its beauty and originality of form (Agates almost everything about them).

Orbicular agate: it is characterized because the drawing formed by the concentric circular lines of its interior, adopt the shape of an eye. This type of agate has always been highly valued by mediums and people who practice the art of divination since it is attributed, by affinity, the ability to see beyond the real and physical

Druze Agate: it is a type of agate in whose center there is still a hole like a druse that contains small or medium crystal formations. Very appreciated also for pendants, rings, as well as large pieces for collectors and ornamental effects in decoration of interior spaces given its spectacular beauty (Agates almost everything on them).

Amorphous agate: very difficult to find and that is usually part of private collections because they are unique pieces. The one that shows the photograph comes from Catamarca, Argentina and it is a formation of jade-agate with an internal clustered shape. They are usually rare pieces, highly valued by original mineral collectors (Agates almost everything about them).

The circular agate is a chalcedony belonging to the family of quartz. The name of agate was formerly given to be in abundance on the banks of a river in southern Italy, the Achates.

What we call circular agate, is not really a concrete mineral but a microcrystalline variety of quartz called chalcedony (as for example the onyx, which is a chalcedony or black agate that sometimes has white bands), or according to its inclusions, we have the called landscape agates or dendritic agates, mossy agates, fire agate, Allegate agate or agate eye – highly valued since ancient times in Egypt where it was carved in the form of an ocular pupil to adorn statues, or agate sardonyx, mottled, etc.

Agates are minerals of volcanic origin; in its growth, in its original formation, it grew inside a mineral bubble where it was united in a significant and unique way, temperature, pressure and space allowing its siliceous atoms and molecules to grow for millennia to end up merging giving rise to the circles that its surface presents and that when it reaches our hands, in the form of a cut of the original piece, still retains all the force as a hermetic principle “the whole is in the part and the part in the whole”; that is his energetic secret  ( Agatas almost everything about them).

Sometimes, as we can see in some agates, these tiny quartz crystals are visible because the piece of agate has been cut without having reached this natural fusion in its process, and before such originality, these pieces they are usually destined to jewelry where they are traditionally set in their outline to be used as hanging originals, medallions and necklaces. The beauty of form and color of the circular agate cannot be appreciated until it is cut, since its external appearance is of a dark, gray or brown stone. At other times, the bubble where the agate has been growing , did not contain enough silica and the quartz tips, when opened in its middle, present the formation that we know as geode(a hollow structure, as if it were a cave, with small transparent quartz or amethyst throughout its interior).

The circular agate is a hard mineral for being quartz, however very fragile for its size that turns it into a delicate mineral (Agates, composition and function).

Nowadays the agates that we can acquire come from Brazil mainly, from Uruguay, Argentina and also from some areas of India, China, Iceland, Italy, Romania and Madagascar (Agates almost everything on them).

Circular agates, crystalline nuclei of strength and wonder.

This mineral presents a particular and unique beauty in its concentric circles. These circles can be very varied as can be seen in the photographs, the most spectacular being those with a circular banded coloration – hence we call them circular agates – in different shades keeping the uniformity of the same chromatic band generally.

These circles are genuine energy concentrators of balance and harmony energy, as we will see in the section on their crsitalotherapeutic qualities (Agates almost everything about them).

(Interestingly, I have been able to verify that the griálica glass conserved in the cathedral of Valencia – and that for many connoisseurs in the subject, it is the Holy Grail-, it is a vessel the size of a cup carved in circular agate of orange colors and whose dating is more than two thousand years ago, whose pedestal and asitas were later placed in a work of goldsmithing, is behind a thick glass inside the same cathedral, and has been used to officiate Mass for each of the Popes of the Vatican that has gone to Spain at different times).

Circular agate cuts have always been used as protection from energies of jealousy and envy, taking them as a pendant on the body, mainly at the level of the heart or the solar plexus.

Rubellite Stone Meaning and Uses

Rubellite – a relatively inexpensive stone. But the witticisms who believe that the name “rubellite” arose because the stone is cheap and its main property is the ruble of the price. Pyatikaratny rubellite – with proper quality and with a deep uniform color – can be estimated at two and a half thousand dollars. Although rubellite is smaller and not the most beautiful color can cost ten and fifteen times less.

The intensity of the color of rubellite is determined by the concentration of manganese in the crystal. Nature seemed to take care that manganese was not boring in the company of other elements: the chemical formula of rubellite takes a whole line. But it is manganese that makes rubellite stone truly beautiful.

Beauty is the main property of the gem. The best rubellite is like a color standard for plant breeders, garden raspberry breeders.

Rubelus means “red”

Rubelus, in Latin, means “red.” However, rubellite is a mineral that is slightly bluish red. Meets pink rubellite. In this case, both the red and pink color of the precious gem fully corresponds to the natural color of the raspberry berry in different stages of maturity. The most expensive rubellites intensity of tone is close to a ripe cherry.

Possessing a sufficient index of refraction, crystalline rubellite attracts buyers by playing light in a stone. Jewelry properties of the gem are appreciated!

Painted in the color of an overripe cherry, the mineral ceases to be rubellite and turns into siberite. There is nothing to be surprised: gemmological relatives of tourmaline (rubellite and siberite are species of tourmaline) are numerous and ubiquitous.

Where does rubellite live?

Uralic mines and stone deposits east of Lake Baikal, the Lanka Mountains and the Madagascar deposits give the world the most beautiful rubellite. Especially large crystals “grow” in Brazil. A record large druse of crystals of Brazilian rubellite weighed four tons. Individual branches of this splice reached a meter length at a half-meter section.

Large and Californian rubellites. But not the size and weight distinguish the best stones of this variety of tourmaline. Colour! Rubellites from the Italian island of Elba are considered the most attractive. For the richness of shades of pink color, the rubellites of this island received a personal name, and are called elbaites.

Stone, valued by history

Rubellite, now stored in the Diamond Fund, and shaped like a bunch of grapes, was rumored to be an ancient Chaldean sorcerer. The old mage did not buy a stone, but with a cunning trick he lured the demon, who brought out the crystal from hell.

A millennium later, the famous gem became the property of Julius Caesar. True, by the time the red stone rubellite properties magical podrasteril, and ensure its owner the unimpeded movement through walls and mountains could no longer. As a result, Caesar died a martyr’s death, and a luxurious crystal disappeared for centuries.

More than 1,500 years after the death of the Roman emperor, the ancient rubellite again became the center of attention. Presented as a gift to the Russian Empress by the Swedish king, the stone was accepted with favor, and relations with the donor state improved.

However, the infernal nature of the ancient crystal proved itself. The war with Russia in Sweden did happen, and the Swedes did not bring glory: having lost the generation of a demonic force, the country lost the ability to win. Since then, Sweden is not involved in military conflicts…

Therapeutic magic rubellite

The magical properties of rubellite known to contemporary esotericists do not inspire fears to the owners of these gems.

Pink Quartz

Pink Quartz

When it comes to natural materials of pink color, most often we mean the subtle nuances of minerals. Another thing is pink quartz! He is uncompromisingly rosy, although not always bright, and is never completely transparent.

The foggy depth of pink quartz is a highly valued property. Jewelers outplay the opacity of the stone as an element of aesthetic inconsistency. Litho therapists put the healing abilities of a mineral in dependence on the characteristics of its optical parameters. Esotericisms are convinced that out of the density of color and saturation of the “fog” in the array of gems, its magical possibilities result.

Beautiful, but unstable

The popularity of rose quartz is by no means limited to the price of a stone. Masters, adjusting gems cut into cabochons, warn: keep cool, keep the heat from the heat of the day and wear it in the evening. “Why? – The ladies are surprised. “After all, in the sun, pink quartz shines no worse than ruby!”

The explanation is given by scientists. The color of the mineral is due to an admixture of titanium ions to the silicon oxide, which forms the basis of the stone. The charge of the ions is unstable: as the temperature increases, it changes so that the titanium atoms cease to interfere with the passage of light through the array, and the quartz becomes transparent.

Complete decolonization of rose quartz occurs when the temperature reaches 300 ° C; however, lower doses of heat are sufficient to reduce the color level.

Pink quartz – not only pink

Various deposits – and pink quartz is mined in Karelia, Altai, Madagascar, the Alps, and America – gems of different shades are produced. In the photo you can see quartz, the pink color of which is gentle, like the first rays of dawn. It is not difficult to find quartz, the brightness and color density of which border on the transition to red.

Purple (purple, lilac, and lilac) ebb of rose quartz is not, but if you want to find such stones in the market you can. In ultraviolet light, such quartzes exhibit the properties of fluorescence and give a weak, but very beautiful violet glow. Researchers say that the color variations of rose quartz are due to microscopic inclusions of iron and manganese compounds.

Unfortunately, most once-rich quartz mines are now depleted. Despite the constant increase in the extraction of technical quartz, the stone of jewelry quality is less and less … The tendency of brightly colored rose quartz to cracking further complicates the arrival of a fine gem on the jewelry market.

Rutile quartz also happens to be pink!

Rutile quartz is a product of a natural compound of titanium oxide and silica. The rutile crystals germinate in the quartz mass with needles-sometimes beams, sometimes disjointed, but always beautiful. Particularly expressive are quartz, the pink haze of which contrasts with the golden shine of rutile needles.

If the rutile inclusions are co-directional and thin to indistinguishability with the naked eye, pink quartz exhibits an asterism effect. The light flicker on the surface of such a cabochon takes the form of a six-beam star. The mysterious inner glow of the stone seems to hide under a pointed gleam…

Magic properties of rose quartz

Pink quartz has an “innate” ability to tune the owner’s soul in a romantic way. It’s worth the brutal lover of mineralogy to acquire several quartz pyramids – and now he lets his hair off as the early hero of Mel Gibson or Sylvester Stalonna. The woman, in whose arsenal there are ornaments with pink quartz, is experiencing an irresistible urge to agree with the man – which ultimately leads her to the marriage altar.

Deep, hidden from the surrounding, consciously constrained feelings pink quartz frees. Do not be surprised if after a week the possession of a beautiful gem will pull you to confide in a company of casual acquaintances. Do not resist, if quartz pushes you to buy your favorite, but carefully avoided cakes. Conquer if the talisman of rose quartz calls you to walk instead of sitting in front of the TV!

Astrologers note that pink quartz is equally favorable to all signs of the Zodiac, but it brings the greatest benefit to the first signs of the trigons. Aries, Capricorn, Libra and Cancer feel the influence of the stone as extremely positive and very powerful.

The healing properties of rose quartz

Wearing bracelets with pink quartz is shown to pregnant women. The mineral normalizes the state of the mother’s vessels and metabolism in the child. Actually, overcoming vascular dysfunction of various geneses with the help of rose quartz is one of the traditional directions of litho therapy.

The result of everyday communication with pink quartz is the improvement of blood circulation in the brain, distal parts of the body. Under the influence of the mineral, the hemopoietic function of the bone marrow is improved. Promotes the gem and getting rid of diseases of the lymphatic system.

Experts warn: too long (perennial) and frequent (daily) contacts with pink quartz change the psychological susceptibility of a person. By reinforcing the stereotypes of a positive perception of reality, a mineral can weaken the understanding of dangers.

Meaning of Lapis Lazuli Healing Stone

The stone lapis lazuli is not too expensive, but infinitely precious. Paradox? The ancients did not think so. The secret knowledge was: lazurite opens its properties to everyone, but will prefer the chosen one. Only those who are not afraid to approach the mountain peaks and touch the hand of heaven will receive the highest reward. The stone of the color of the sky, extracted in the unthinkable height, will make the life of its owner flight over vanity…

Millennia passed until science surpassed superstition, and the nature of the gem was revealed to humanity in its entirety. We are aware of the chemical composition and physical properties of the mineral. Its deposits are discovered in different parts of the world. The extraction, processing and use of cornflower stone are being conducted. And yet, lapis lazuli – in every piece of it, in every bead and jewelry insert – still keeps the secret of its charm!

Heavenly blue, cured by the forces of nature, attracts, captivates and excites the imagination as if it were old. Among the dominance of the artificial sparkling of man-made crystals, the “soft” glow of the azure stone attracts attention with an artless beauty and an amazing resemblance to the depths of the sky.

Lapis lazuli then glows in the August afternoon, then it turns blue with anticipatory thunderstorm twilight, and then it is silvered by a cloudy haze over the blue of the sea. They say there are even more beautiful gems in the world. But this is the voice of envy…

Physicochemical properties of lapis lazuli

Lapis lazuli – a mineral well studied. It is distinguished by:

– color azure blue, dark blue;

– shine glass, fat;

– Opaque, can shine through;

– The line is light blue;

– Mohs hardness 5.5; fragile;

– Density of 2.38-2.42 g / cm3;

– Fractured shell;

– Cubic systemic;

– In the form of a crystal it is rare;

– Crystals of a simple cubic structure. Chlorine ions are located in the corners and center of the cube in the tetrahedral environment of sodium ions;

– The symmetry class is hex tetrahedral;

Cleavage is imperfect;

– Aggregates are dense, amorphous;

– decomposes in HCl with the liberation of hydrogen sulphide;

– Accompanying minerals – calcite, pyrite;

– Similar minerals: sodalite, nosean, gayuin.

The chemical composition of lazurite includes: sodium oxide Na2O – 16.8%, calcium oxide CaO – 8.7%, alumina Al2O3 – 27.2%, silica SiO2 – 31.8%, sulfur oxide SO3 – 34%, chlorine Cl is 0.25%.

Lapis lazuli in the history of mankind

At least seven thousand years ago, the extraction of blue stone in the mining mines of the Pamirs began. Decorating the palaces of the eastern rulers, the lapis lazuli was invariably the subject of attention of ambassadors and merchants. Western European artists have learned to triturate the mineral into powder, mix the powder with the boiled oil and thus produce ultramarine – “over the sea” – paint.

Lazurite was in love with the Pharaohs. The best of the surviving works of ancient Egyptian art bluish with a primordial density of color. It was in ancient Egypt that a tradition arose for the creation of gold jewelry with lapis lazuli insets.

The conquest of the East enabled the nobles of Europe to freely dispose of the precious gem. Rich houses were necessarily decorated with vases and fireplaces, statues and balustrades made of lapis lazuli.

True, lapis lazuli – lapis lazuli dense homogeneous color, blue or purple – was valued highly and was used only for making jewelry.

The discovery of the blue mineral in the Russian borders helped the Russian emperors decorate the grandiose buildings of the capital with beautiful azure finish. Columns of St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the halls of the Peterhof Palace complex, the Winter Palace of Imperial Russia shine with the ever-fresh blue of Russian lapis lazuli.

Worldwide deposits of precious stone

Lapis lazuli is considered an ornamental stone. At the same time, the best samples of the mineral have undoubted jewelry values. But even in this case the price of lapis lazuli does not exceed two dollars per gram!

Price availability of the most beautiful natural material is determined by the volume of extraction of blue stone. Chilean Andes – along with the Afghan Pamirs – give the lion’s share of the proceeds of lazurite raw materials to the world market.

North America, Argentina, India and Russia produce high-quality lapis lazuli from less significant deposits.

Artificial gem or how to counterfeit lapis lazuli

Counterfeits of natural lapis lazuli are numerous. There is nothing surprising in that the most expensive varieties of gem are imitated. Painting jasper and sodalite in purple, scammers give out the finished product for lapis lazuli.

Extruded synthetic spinel is often issued for a crystal of lapis lazuli. There are several ways to check it. Wetting the natural gem leads to a continuous moistening of the surface. On artificial stone water is collected in droplets.

Lazurite of natural origin is refractory. In the old days, a stone designed for cabochon cutting was poured on fire for up to ten days to reveal defects in its structure. No imitation of such a test will survive…

Decoration from lapis lazuli

A wonderful piece of interior decoration can serve as a fragment of wild lapis lazuli. Some of the deposits are rich in deposits of blue gem with sparks of “golden” pyrite in the thickness of the stone massif. Even untreated fragments of valuable rock become the focus of attention!

Jewelry lapis lazuli is often made by material for cutting gems. Refinished cabochon lapis lazuli recover in gold and silver. Pendants, pendants and earrings with lapis lazuli inserts are often combined into headsets.

Serially produced only lapis lazuli beads. They are inexpensive. Jewelry made of lapis lazuli, made on individual projects, can be evaluated higher than products with precious stones of the highest category. In the photo below – lapis lazuli designed for custom jewelry.

Uses of Kyanite

Stone kyanite and its Properties

  • July 12, 2018
  • 0 Comments

Kyanite (from the Greek “kyanos”) – blue. Another name for the stone is “disten” (from the Greek “dis sthenos”) – a double fortress. Kyanite – an exotic stone, rarely found in jewelry. In ordinary jewelry stores, you will not see it, and you can find it only from private craftsmen, minerals sellers or collectors.

Origin and chemical composition

Kyanite is an aluminum silicate and refers to rock-forming minerals. It is formed with deep metamorphism of sedimentary rocks rich in alumina, is also found in quartz veins and contact zones of pegmatites. The coloration of kyanites can vary depending on the impurities of the compounds of iron, chromium, titanium and manganese. Traditional color – blue or blue, there are also green, yellow, purple, colorless or almost black kyanites.

The hardness of the stone is very different in different directions. This mineral is found in the form of elongated lamellar crystals with perfect cleavage in one direction parallel to the elongation. Hardness 5,0 (scratching with a knife) in the direction of elongation of the plate and 7,0 (not scratched by the knife) in the perpendicular direction. This property distinguishes kyanite from other precious stones. Blue and bluish-green crystals are distinguished by higher refractive index and density.

Physicochemical properties of kyanite

  • The chemical formula is Al2O (SiO4).
  • Color – blue, sky blue to almost colorless.
  • Singonia is triclinic.
  • The hardness is 4.5-6 on the Mohs scale.
  • The density is 3.5-3.7 g / cm3.
  • Fracture – fibrous.
  • Glitter – glass.

Varieties of kyanite

Kyanites can be dark blue, purple, yellow, and green, colorless, black. There are also crystals with the effect of “cat’s eye”. There are even kyanites with pleochroism (alexandrite effect) – a change in color depending on the angle of view. The color of such stones can vary from cobalt blue and violet to green. Ornaments with kyanite look best in daylight.

Processing and use

Kyanite is used today mainly as industrial raw materials – for the production of high-strength refractory and acid-resistant materials. It is also used in the production of insulators, crucibles for casting steel, spark plugs in the automotive industry, as well as for the creation of aluminum-silicon alloys. He even received the names of the stone of the new millennium and the stone of the 21st century. Kyanite is also used in the ceramic industry for the production of sinks, baths, and tiles.

In the jewelry business, transparent stones are used. They are cabochoned, inserted into earrings, pendants or made from them beads and bracelets. Kyanite is difficult to handle because of its ability to crack easily. At the same time, after polishing, the stone acquires a noble appearance and shine. Ornaments with kyanite look great in daylight.

Long since, the blue-colored crystals have been grinded and sold to inexperienced customers in the guise of sapphires. Indeed, a jewel stone of deep blue color of high transparency and purity can easily be mistaken for sapphire. However, if you take a good look, you can notice that the kyanite is colored unevenly – with stripes.

Deposits of kyanite

The deposits of jewelry kyanites exist almost all over the world. The first place in the extraction of industrial kyanite is occupied by the USA and India. The US Congress in 1984 declared it a strategic material and this could mean, among other things, that it was used in secret industries. In the US, stones are mined in the states of Montana, Virginia, Vermont, Connecticut, Massachusetts, South and North Carolina, Georgia. There are deposits in India, Myanmar, Burma, Kenya, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, Australia, Brazil, Austria, Finland, Serbia, Spain and Switzerland. Kyanites of bright blue sapphire are found in the foothills of Nepal.

In Russia, deposits of celestial blue and violet kyanites are found in the Urals. Their spindle-shaped crystals are called oatmeal. Transparent beautifully painted kyanites can also be found in the Arkhangelsk region and the Kola Peninsula.

Imitation and synthetics

Jewelry transparent kyanite deep blue color of high purity can be taken for sapphire, but it is softer than sapphire, and in a crystal it cannot be confused with sapphire. Lighter, watery-blue kyanites are very similar to aquamarine, especially the shape of crystals. If it is noticeable that the color is distributed unevenly in the gem, by strips, then it certainly kyanite.

Magical properties of kyanite

Kyanit is considered a talisman of travelers. It has been known for a long time that a crystal of kyanite suspended on a human hair or silk thread always turns to the north with the same end. For this reason, travelers often took a crystal of kyanite with them, especially if they went to unexplored land.

It is believed that kyanite makes its owner more reasonable, faithful, modest, and prudent. This stone is simply necessary for people who are prone to all sorts of adventures and love affairs.

As a talisman, a kyanite helps a person concentrate on one thing, rather than throwing energy in vain, trying to do everything at once. Also kyanit helps to choose exactly the case, which will bring to its owner the greatest benefit – from material profit to achieving fame and success. Stone protects the owner from the perfidy of business partners, attracts to him the sympathy and trust of other people, helps to climb the career ladder, but only on the condition that the kyanite owner is a kind and decent person. This is the talisman of teachers, doctors, lawyers, bankers, businessmen and politicians.

Properties of Cornelian

Healing properties

Traditional healers believe that kyanite increases the general tone of the body, improves memory, facilitates the state of childhood infections, kidney and bladder diseases, relieves insomnia, removes the effects of stress.

Horoscope

Astrologers strongly recommend wearing kyanite to people born under the signs of Sagittarius and Gemini. It also suits Pisces, Cancers and Libra. This stone is contraindicated irresponsible, lazy, fraudulent people.

History

It is known that kyanites brought from India to Russia and Europe in the 16th century. In 1575 in Moscow was compiled “A descriptive book, how to lead young people to the nobility and the whole price,” and in part it describes “all kinds of land different goods, they are brought to Russia by the Germans and other lands people trading.” Later the book was supplemented with new information, including the description of kyanites: “A stone is a bous, siz, blue, and you do not buy a bass for the yawn.” Baus was brought from India, and it was assumed that in the course of trading he could be given out for a yakhont, that is, for a sapphire.

The name kyanite owes its name to a beautiful sky-blue color. In Germany, kyanite was formerly called a plank stone, because it forms elongated long-columned crystals, similar in structure to wood.
