More about Dumortierite
Dumortierite is a fibrous variably colored aluminum borosilicate mineral. In plain English, Dumortierite beads rock!
This blue/purple gemstone can be found quite readily in North America and Europe — it was, in fact, named after 19th century French paleontologist Eugene Dumortier, who is credited with its discovery. But it's not very familiar to the world at large. Much better known is its look-alike, lapis lazuli. Excite and educate your customer as you add these striking natural-stone beads to your jewely making projects.
You will love these gems — especially if you're among the few who can pronounce the name correctly!
