Named in 1789 by Abraham Gottlieb Werner from the Greek word "kyanos", meaning "blue," the common color of the species. The French spelling, "Cyanite", was commonly used by mineralogists through much of the 19th and early 20th Centuries.
- Very fine Kyanite can have a near Sapphire-blue color, but also can be found in a range of white, gray, green or yellow. Color is often not consistent throughout many examples, often showing white streaks in a medium blue. Luster is vitreous (glassy) to almost pearly. It is found across the world, with large pockets in Brazil, Kenya, Switzerland, Australia, and New England.
- Kyanite in Stone Lore is rumored to aid in communication and expressing oneself, and to better embrace love and relationships.
