Also known as blue goldstone or monk's gold, this inlay is formed by melting quartz sand, cobalt, feldspar, manganese, chromium, and copper in a process believed to have been created in the 17th Century in Venice. This technique was a carefully guarded secret for centuries. This stone sits at a 6.5 on the Mohs hardness scale.

I was so excited to get this one in one of the subscription boxes that I immediately wanted to order more. Absolutely brilliant colours and looks amazing as an inlay material!
It will fly out if you push too hard when sanding, but other than that it's a great and beautiful inlay material
