Blue Dumortierite Pendant
Royal blue coloured dumortierite gemstone pendant crafted for Stone Mania in a timeless sterling silver setting. A surprsingly light weight gemstone that's often confused for sodalite and sometimes for lapis lazuli. Lapis however is considerably heavier, much rarer and more expensive.
On Mohs scale of mineral hardness which is a scale that measures the scratch resistance of one mineral against another, dumortierite grades 8 which is impressively hard. First identified in 1881 by a French mineralogist who named it in honour of palaeontologist Eugene Dumortier, dumortierite is mainly used for lapidary purposes.
