Title: "Blue John"
Named after a type of fluorite historically found in mines and caves beneath Castleton in England where, as Derbyshire Blue John, it was extracted from several mines including the famous Blue John Cavern. The name derives from the French "bleu et jaune" (blue and yellow) characterising its colour.

Signed and dated on the back and sent with a certificate of authenticity.
A small signature monogram will also be added to the front corner of the painting.
