Beautiful and tactile, rare Blue John tumble stones.
Blue John is one of the oldest and most famous varieties of Fluorite in the world, found only near Castleton in Derbyshire, England. It is highly prized for its unique purplish-blue and cream yellow color, and its fourteen distinctive veining and banding patterns, created by filmy inclusions of petroleum millions of years ago. This striking material was utilized throughout the 18th and 19th centuries for use in fireplace panels, vases, urns, clocks, jewelry and other stately ornamentation. The mineral is now scarce, having been mined out later as flux ore, though small amounts are still mined each year from the famous Blue John Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern for ornamental and lapidary use. The name Blue John is believed to come from the French bleu-jaune, meaning “blue-yellow,” and is also referred to as Derbyshire Blue John and Derbyshire Spar.
Blue John Fluorite may be used in gridding arrangements to stimulate the restructuring of ozone in one’s environment. Utilized in planetary and global awareness meditations, it can further facilitate the healing of the earth’s ozone layer. Fluorite is a multi-dimensional crystal manifesting the highest aspect of the mind: attunement to Spirit. It heightens intuitive powers, and awakens one to the purity and perfection of the universe and how each individual fits into that perfect plan. Within Fluorite’s essence, it is possible to develop an understanding of the non-physical realities of the fourth, fifth and sixth dimensions, and to explore the inner sanctums of the self, where all knowledge and wisdom is contained. Fluorite allows one to align with the source of our being and to stay consciously attuned to Divine Will while still functioning on the physical plane. It enables one to be at peace while still claiming one’s uniqueness and individual expression.
