Tiffany Stone is a rare type of rock that can only be found in one location in Western Utah but the area is now off limits so no further mining is permitted. It's widely stated online that Tiffany Stone was named because of its similarity to Tiffany Glass but we cannot find any documented evidence to support that despite extensive and thorough research.
Made up of several different minerals, Tiffany Stone is sometimes called bertrandite which is not correct although it does contain this beryllium rich mineral and is the reason why most Tiffany Stone is crushed up. Beryllium is one of the lightest of all metals which also has one of the highest melting points hence it's highly sought after for industrial purposes.
Manganese oxide and the minerals quartz and fluorite are believed to be the cause of the stone's colour.
