The high pressure form is kyanite (Triclinic), the high temperature form is sillimanite (orthorhombic), and the low temperature, low pressure form is andalusite (orthorhombic). Transformations between all three polymorphs are reconstructive, thus all three forms can metastably exist at the Earth's surface.
high-pressure stability of kyanite and to determine wheth-er kyanite decomposes with pressure into its oxides or forms a new Al 2SiO 5 polymorph. This work is the second part of a joint study on the high-pressure behavior of kyanite; the ﬁrst part (Comodi et al. 1997) examines the structural evolution of kyanite with pressure.
Oct 11, 2017· In P–T pseudosections, a first generation of kyanite, which is only present in the most aluminous samples, is potentially linked to staurolite breakdown, and its resorption is consistent with a subsequent increase in pressure. This kyanite represents the earliest remnant of prograde metamorphism identifiable in these rocks.
Kyanite is also archaically known as cyanite. It is an aluminosilicate that forms during high pressure in schists and gneiss rocks undergoing metamorphism. Kyanite naturally occurs in long, bladed crystalline structures creating a unique appearance. It can be found on every continent.

Kyanite is found in locations where high pressure metamorphism has occurred. This is why convergent continental collision boundaries are common locations to find kyanite. These collision boundaries provide the perfect high pressure atmosphere for sedimentary rock to be metamorphosed and kyanite …
function of pressure is therefore essential in understand-ing the stability relationships and phase-transition mech-anisms within the Al 2SiO 5 system. Relative to sillimanite and andalusite, kyanite is the high-pressure phase in the Al 2SiO 5 system. The crystal structure of kyanite …
In order to constrain the high-pressure behavior of kyanite, multi-anvil experiments have been carried out from 15 to 25 GPa, and 1,350 to 2,500°C. Both forward and reversal approaches to phase...

Kyanite is typically a blue aluminosilicate mineral, usually found in aluminium-rich metamorphic pegmatites and/or sedimentary rock.Kyanite in metamorphic rocks generally indicates pressures higher than four kilobars.It is commonly found in quartz. Although potentially stable at lower pressure and low temperature, the activity of water is usually high enough under such conditions that it is ...
The purpose of this study was to explore the possible high-pressure phase transformations displayed by Al2SiOs. Thermodynamic calculations indicate that kyanite should be relatively unstable to its corn- ponent oxides with the close-packed structures, corundum and stishovite, at high pressure .

The pressure stability of kyanite was experimentally reversed with the use of a multi-anvil apparatus. Kyanite was found to decompose into its oxides stishovite and corundum between 14 ± 0.5 GPa (at 1000 °C) and 17.5 ± 1.0 GPa (at 2000 °C).
Aluminum rich silicates: kyanite, andalusite, and sillimanite-These minerals have a specific range of pressures and temperatures at which each is stable 1) Andalusite = forms at high temps, low pressure; usually created by contact metamorphism 2) Kyanite = forms at high pressure; forms during subduction associated with mountain building
Kyanite is a metamorphic mineral that most often forms from the high pressure alteration of clay-rich sedimentary rocks. It is found in the schists and gneisses of regionally metamorphosed areas and less often in quartzite or eclogite. Kyanite's typical habit is a bladed crystal although it sometimes occurs as radiating masses of crystals.

Ultra-high-pressure rocks have proven to be of great importance as natural archives of the mineralogy and conditions (temperature, pressure, % volatiles, among others) of the deeply subducted lithosphere that complement prior insights from high-pressure experimental petrology. This study investigates metapelitic kyanite–garnet schists from the

High-pressure pelitic granulites, characterized by a key peak assemblage of kyanite-K-feldspar-garnet (O'Brien and Rötzler, 2003), have been considered as a hallmark of continental subduction and collision tectonics because only tectonic processes related to subduction and continent–continent collision can transport the sedimentary ...
