  1. The folklore surrounding this beautiful stone is imaginative! Thanks for sharing some of its history. Our Creator has filled the earth with such depths of beauty–I am glad for the truths of His power exhibited in every part of the earth. This stone is one of my favorites and I would especially love the ones with the deepest cobalt blue color in them.
