Comments

Here is an oddity for the gem enthusiast with an interest in Kyanite.  Several years ago a small deposit of gem Kyanite from Madgascar was found to contain significant amounts of the elements Vanadium and Chromium.  See the Fall 2007 issue of Gems and Gemology for a write-up of this material.  These elements contributed to an attractive gem greenish-blue color that is unusual in gem Kyanite - more more well known are the greenish stones from Brazil and the deep blues from Nepal. This interesting gem is from a newer find of this material in India - the deposit has produced gems with the same saturated greenish-blue color of the Madagascar finds.  Most of the material has been highly included and MUCH smaller. Well cut, particularly for Kyanite, and very unusual.
