For the jewelry-maker or beading enthusiast, here are 25 beads made of Kyanite
chips. Chips are the small leftovers from tumbled stones or shells,
with holes drilled through them. Mix them with other stone beads and
metallic spacers for endless possibilities.
[Please allow for natural variations in the stones.]
Tell Me More! Kyanite is a
very difficult stone to polish. It's also really hard to
photograph--our chips are slightly bluer than how they appear in the
picture. These chips are smooth and flat, but they cannot be treated
too roughly; otherwise they will chip.
- Stone: Kyanite
- Color: Translucent light violet-gray blue
- Approximate size and shape of chips: 1/4"; flat, rounded, smooth, wafer-like
