Hidden in the hills west of Castleton in Derbyshire, England an unusual mineral occurs in small amounts. Its name is "Blue John" for the distinctive blue in the stone that is swirled by darker blue, some lighter blue and cream and even some inky blue. If you look closely, you might see a rich chocolate brown in some stones, too.
For many years, we’ve had requests for Chalice jewelry made with Blue John but it was impossible to find these beautiful stones. Finally, after a long search, we found a family of UU jewelers in the village of Castleton who feature this unique stone in a small collection of flaming chalice pendants made from Sterling Silver. Crafted with the same intricate attention to every detail that you expect from our own hand-made ChaliceArt jewelry, each precious piece of Blue John made into a flaming Chalice satisfies our requirement for the most special and very best to present to you.
