tazza (tazza)


Bluejohn is a fluorspar mineral mostly mined in Derbyshire. Its name comes from the French bleu-jaune, meaning ‘blue-yellow’. Known in ancient Rome, it was not widely used until the late 1700s. Since then its translucent bands of colour have made it popular for ornaments.

This object is on display at RAMM in the Courtyard.
