Kyanite is a fragile stone that cannot be left submersed in water as it will dissolve. Kyanite is a refractory material, and it has a high melting point, low thermal conductance, and maintains its strength up to about 1100øC.

Kyanite crystal can clear all energetic blockages without retaining negative energy. Therefore, it does not need to be cleaned and is always ready to assist with an active renewal. Not only does Kyanite cleanse, but it also balances vibrations to be in tune with one's highest truth.

How to Cleanse Kyanite

To charge your Kyanite stone, place it in a bowl made from something natural – wood or stone and cover it with a bit of water to let it sit. Kyanite loves to connect to natural elements, which can help it recharge its soul.
