This work looks at the ornate Derbyshire Blue John stone, mined for centuries at Castleton in Derbyshire. The illustrations highlight the 12 different veins of stone and some of the magnificent vases and tables which now grace country houses across the nation. The book describes how the stone war formed, the mineralogy of the area, the mining of the stone, and how it is fashioned into jewellery and ornaments. It also covers the production of Blue John over the centuries and details the notable collections.
