Kyanite forms in crystal 'blades' and 'wands' that range in color from denim to sapphire blue. Linked with the energy of elemental Water, Kyanite crystals can be used for emotional healing or to strengthen your resolve and increase your self-confidence. Kyanite helps you to recognise your strengths and gifts so that you can make the most of them, both for yourself and for the benefit of the wider community.
Kyanite is sometimes used in magic to develop charisma, charm and the ability to hold people's attention and speak eloquently. It is a useful crystal for anyone who suffers from shyness or for people who feel 'invisible' in life and wants to make more of an impact on society.
Blades of Kyanite can be used symbolically to 'cut away' the invisible emotional ties that bind you to people or places you have outgrown or to habits and addictions that no longer serve you. Kyanite seems to have a connection with the emotional energy surrounding memories, and can be used to help you look at past events rationally, without anger or sorrow, so that the experiences can be processed and released. Meditating or crystal gazing with Kyanite is also said to grant visions of past lives, especially of important events that were significant enough to leave an emotional imprint that endures through time. Some healers believe that emotions like guilt and sorrow can sometimes be so powerful that they impact on future lives; Kyanite is one of the best crystals for processing this sort of energy so that it can be released, making room for true forgiveness and healing.
