WHAT IS BLUE SANDSTONE? Blue Sandstone is created with the mixing of glass which is made from natural materials such as sand limestone and soda ash together with quartz sand. The quartz sand is heated and melted, then it is infused with other particles. These particles are substances like chromium, manganese, copper, cobalt and feldspar all of which infuse sparkly specks of color. Although not a naturally occurring stone its components are naturally-occurring minerals so they are still considered a stone.
WHY IT'S AWESOME? Some cultures call Blue Sandstone the 'wishing stone' and carry it with them in a pocket or pouch. It is still unclear but crystal experts date blue sandstone back to the 17th century to the Miottis of Venice, saying a family of glassmakers invented a technique to make this stone. Blue Sandstone has also been linked to the Goddess Aphrodite representing her connection to gold & the sea.
