C1859 Blue John Fluorite
This is a delightful piece of Blue John Fluorite, which has been cleverly shaped into a tear-drop shape and shows shades of the purple and some golden-yellow within the light/white, almost clear Fluorite. This piece might have been given a very light coating of a resin or clear varnish of some kind, rather than being polished, due to the feel, but this is protective and enhances the appearance, it doesn't detract from it in any way. Where it is smooth it feels very smooth and the natural dips and cleavages in it are unfilled and feel natural too.

This rare form of Fluorite is only found in Derby, UK. The name is said to come from the French, Bleu et Jaune, - Blue and Yellow – referring to the two most dominant colours found in this variety. Often, the deep purples are almost black. In addition to the generic Fluorite properties, Blue John is additionally excellent for spiritual workers and anyone sensitive to energies, helping to prevent us from giving too much energy away, or taking too much in. It can act as a catalyst for spiritual growth and assists teaching and learning and also energies and renews mind, body and Soul.
Blue John seems to have a resonance with Cathar past lives and can help access energies from those times, healing persecution echoes and helping to reclaim power from that time.
