BLUE SCHEELITE 925 STERLING SILVER JEWELLERY
Blue Scheelite, commonly known as Lapis Lace Onyx, is a stone made out of Calcite and Dolomite rather than Scheelite. Due to its UV fluorescence, the mine owner misidentified the vein as a Scheelite-based stone when he discovered it. Surprisingly, when exposed to UV light, this Calcite and Dolomite mixture creates the same color. The remarkable thing about this pair of minerals is that they both have a hardness of 3, but when combined, they have a hardness of 5. It is now only found in one location in Turkey.
