I have just listed the most fantastic clear blue kyanite. Not that manky, streaky greyish stuff with the merest hint of blue; this is high grade, royal blue, clean material with the most breathtaking glassy lustre. My supplier tells me that he sells alot of this stuff as a sapphire substitute, and I have to say, the colour is very similar indeed. I currently have this in a 4mm and 6mm cabochon and will be listing 4 and 5mm brilliant cut round gemstones in the next couple of days.
