Blue John: Blue John (also known as Derbyshire Spar) is a semi-precious gemstone and is considered one of Britain’s rarest minerals. It was first discovered by the Romans over two thousand years ago. Blue John is a rare variety of the mineral Calcium Fluorite, with distinctive bands of purple, blue and gold. In the United Kingdom, Blue John is found only in the Blue John Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern at Castleton in Derbyshire. By the 19th century and during the Regency period, Blue John was in high demand and was mined for its decorative value, being shaped into a wide variety of ornamental items.
