Black Kyanite, like other forms of kyanite, is a silicate mineral typically found in metamorphic rocks such as schist and gneiss, as well as in pegmatites. It is known for its long, blade-like crystal formations, which can grow in various orientations and sizes. Black Kyanite specifically gets its color from trace amounts of iron and other minerals present during its formation.
In terms of appearance, Black Kyanite typically forms in long, striated blades that can resemble feathers or wings, hence the common association with wings. These blades can range in color from deep black to dark gray, with a metallic or vitreous luster. The crystal structure of Black Kyanite is typically characterized by its fibrous or columnar habit, with parallel striations running along the length of the blades. These blades often intersect at various angles, creating intricate and unique patterns.
Black Kyanite wings are often used in spiritual and metaphysical practices for their believed ability to cleanse, align, and balance energy fields. They are also prized for their grounding properties and protective qualities. Additionally, Black Kyanite is associated with the root chakra, making it a popular choice for grounding and stabilizing meditation practices. Its striking appearance and spiritual significance make Black Kyanite wings a sought-after and meaningful addition to crystal collections and jewelry pieces.
