    I picked up these earrings and I was wondering what the stone might be? The stone has a green/ blue line through it and so I don't think it is amethyst. I did wonder about blue john but know that's rare, so perhaps not likely, any thoughts? TYIA. :happy:

    They are very sweet.:happy: I agree the stone is fluorite, and it could be Blue John.

    Blue John often has a hint of yellow in it (Blue John = bleu-jaune), but that isn't always the case. I have never seen it with green.

    For those such as myself who did not know, Blue John is a rare form of fluorite. (Thanks to Wikipedia.)

    I’m very partial to a bit of Blue John.

    Yay, I was hoping it was but I have never had it before, so I wasn't sure. I will try your UV suggestion tomorrow as I'm out and about and been looking at jewellery in museums today....always a fun and sparkly time!

    Thanks everyone for replying. :happy:

    I'd say GIMME THAT. :shame::shame::shame::shame: It's fluorite for sure and the Blue John form since Bear/Smaug says so. I think I have one small piece here somewhere.

    I'm sure it will fluoresce beautifully.
