Kyanite is known for blue and bluish-green gems, but nothing anywhere near these orange specimens has ever been discovered before.  This deposit has been producing Spessartine for a few years now and this discovery of Kyanite was a surprise to say the least.  There seems to be a decent amount of low grade material, but the truly gemmy pieces are few and far between.  The color is excellent and the classic 'speck' inclusions are minimal and not distracting - just about the very best we have seen of this unusual type.  Excellent, fresh cutting and a very nice polish.
