This pendant looks like one of the finest Sapphires you will ever see, but it is in fact a rare gemstone called Kyanite. This particular gem comes from Nepal where the finest blue Kyanite is mined. Kyanite is a rare mineral that is normally cloudy, even opaque, and streaked with bands of lighter and darker color, thus it is more often seen in mineral collections or as beads. When the crystals grow large enough and clean enough they can be cut into gems that rival the finest Sapphire as to color and brightness, but at a fraction of the cost. This gem is a perfect example, so we set it in a classic white gold pendant mounting that could match the many Sapphire rings we have in stock.
Details: 14k white gold pendant with 5.08ct cushion Kyanite and .33ctw Diamond accents (SI2-I1 GH).
