Kyanite three ways in this rustic and charming pair of earrings. The warm copper tones are complemented beautifully by the icy blue of kyanite, raw and in two bead shapes. The word kyanite comes from the Greek word ‘kuanos’ or ‘kyanos’, meaning deep blue. It used to be called Disthene, which means ‘two strengths’. Kyanite is also called Cyanite and Rhaetic Ide. These earrings measure approximately 3 1/4 inches long from the top of the hand crafted ear wire.
