Derbyshire Blue John (also known as Derbyshire Spar, or simply Blue John) is a semi-precious mineral, a form of fluorite with bands of a purple-blue or yellowish colour that was formed several million years ago. In the UK it is found only at Blue John Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern at Castleton in Derbyshire.

During the 19th century, Blue John was mined for its ornamental value, and mining continues on a very small scale today as only a small amount of the semi-precious mineral is allowed to be mined each year. It is predominantly used to make Blue John jewellery.

Collection Information

Our Derbyshire Blue John jewellery features this semi-precious mineral which was formed several million years ago.

Blue John is a form of fluorite with bands of a purple-blue or yellowish colour. The name Blue John may come from a corrupted of the French “Bleu jaune” - “blue yellow”.

It is only found in the UK in one location – the Blue John Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern in Castleton, Derbyshire.

Blue John is becoming rarer and mining is now extremely limited each year, with only a small amount being made into jewellery.
