Kyanite from Brazil
Hello club members :)
I received a parcel of Kyanite from Brazil, the location is a mine at Sao Jose Da Safira, Minas Gerais.
My source selected these pieces out of a 40 kg lot specially for me, most of it is a nice dark cyan, translucent and gemmy, perfect for jewelery and pendants.
