Blue john is mined in Derbyshire, the only place in the world where it is to be found. The mines have been used since Roman times, and very little of the stone is left today. Most of the ores are very small, and larger pieces are therefore rare. This vase is of exceptionally large size, and the colour of the stone is extremely rich and varied.
