An attractive silver tie pin that has been set with an oval piece of Blue John. Blue John (also known as Derbyshire Spar) is a semi-precious mineral, a form of fluorite with bands of a purple-blue or yellowish colour. In England it is found only at Blue John Cavern and Treak Cliff Cavern at Castleton in Derbyshire. During the 19th century it was mined for its ornamental value, and mining continues on a small scale today. This tie pin is a good example. All our tie pins come with a stopper at the end of the pin.
