Unfortunately, the remaining 14 icons that have filled the niches of the kiotas were not preserved. These icons, donated to the cathedral during the construction, were not mosaic. Their salaries were made of silver, decorated with enamel, gilding and pearls. Icons were seized in the 1920s. and their fate today, unfortunately, is not known. While these niches are empty. Kyots are examples of the beautiful work of Russian stone-cutters in the Ekaterinburg Lapidary and Kolyvan grinding factories. The choice of stones from which the cuots were created is not accidental. The same stones - green revnevsky jasper and pink rhodonite - were used to create tombstones over the tombs of Emperor Alexander II and his wife Maria Alexandrovna in the Peter and Paul Cathedral. To decorate the kiotas, jasper and other varieties were used - the pale Aushkulskaya - for the cross and openwork ornament at the top, bright variegated Orsk jasper - for patterned columns and plates in the center of the kyot. Completed with the highest skill patterns the kiots are connected with the mosaic ornaments of the temple.
