I'm not English, so I don't understand England's fascination with beans and their luck-bringing qualities. I think, much like acorns or other seeds, beans hold potential to grow, which is a miracle. But the countless jeweled beans I've seen coming out of the UK? I mean, I don't hate them. This one is made of Blue John, a rare variety of calcium fluorite with distinctive, purple, blue and golden yellow banding. It's only found in Treak Cliff Hill in Derbyshire.

MATERIALS: blue john (fluorite), new sterling silver chain.

AGE: c. 1900

SIZE: 1 1/4" length including the bale, 18" chain
