C1860 Blue John Fluorite
This is a stunning example of the rare Blue John Fluorite, clearly showing the colouring and banding on the side, the deep purple at the base and some golden too. It is incredibly tactile as well as energetic, and the top has been left natural and the sides are so smooth I think they have been given a light coating of a resin or varnish to seal it, bringing out the true beauty of the stone. It is surprisingly heavy and sits nicely in the hadn.

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.
