C1861 Blue John Fluorite
Another lovely example of the Blue John Fluorite, this has beautiful banding on the sides clearly showing the different colours. There is both the dark purple, almost black Fluorite and the golden one too in this piece, which has been partly sealed with a resin or varnish around most of the sides, enhancing the colouring and markings and giving a mostly smooth finish. Very tactile and energetic also.

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.
Caireen Todd, of Bluestone Vibrational Therapies has created an essence which combines Blue John and Gaia Phoenix Flint called Blue Phoenix
