    It has to be Kyanite, as at such high pressure of 6kbar , kyanite would be stable only not other two polymorphs. You can have different polymorphic transformation in case of upliftment, in which the different physical condition prevailed and there is a decrease in pressure. So at this stage of upliftment , you can see transition from Kyanite to Andalusite or Kyanite to sillimanite (that surely attributed to changing physical conditions).
