Now a little bit about the stones…
Blue John (also known as Derbyshire Spar) is a semi-precious mineral, a form of fluorite with bands of a purple-blue or yellowish colour. In the UK it is found only at Blue John Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern at Castleton in Derbyshire.
During the 19th century, it was mined for its ornamental value, and mining continues on a small scale. Deposits of fluorite have been recently found in China with colouring and banding similar to the classic Blue John stone.
Labradorite is usually blue or blue green, lavender blue, or even yellow in colour. Labradorite crystals display a mix of all these colours, which make them look really mesmerising and eye catching! Aside from mining locations in the USA, labradorite can also be found in countries like Mexico, Madagascar, Finland, Greenland, Italy, Russia, and Scandinavia.
