KYANITE CRYSTALS WITH GARNETS
 
Norway

​​​​​​​An unusual specimen of mica schist packed with tiny garnet crystals and very pale blue, bladed crystals of kyanite. It could best be described as a round 'pod' in mica schist which has been broken open.

Kyanite is not only a gemstone but is also a mineral with an interesting geological history. It forms only at extremely high pressures – such as those that exist deep beneath mountain ranges as a result of continental collisions.  It has been brought to the surface by hundreds of millions of years of erosion. 
 

This is heavy specimen, weighing 1.32 kilograms.
