Derbyshire Blue John Stone is a rare, semi-precious mineral found atonly one location in the world; close to Castleton, in Derbyshire, England. The name 'Blue John" derives from the French Bleu Jaune meaning Blue Yellow. A form of fluorite, 'Blue John" was discovered as miners explored cave systems in Castleton, Derbyshire looking for lead in the 19th century.
Each Blue John stone is unique. There are no two identical stones. Due to the fact that stones are cut individually from a 'vein" they will differ. Some may appear semi-translucent. Some pieces may display a creamy or yellow-like colour. These points are what make Blue John stones so valuable and rare. They are often considered an investment with collectors sited all over the world!
*Please note, Ceirys has traced the authenticity of this stone and is satisfied that it is true Derbyshire Blue John.
Please note: Whilst every effort is made to ensure accuracy, when you receive your stone it may look slightly different due to photographic conditions.
