|The creation of sandstone and blue sandstone is still unclear to this day. Some crystal experts believe it can be traced back to the 17th century, to the Miottis of Venice. They were a family of glassmakers who supposedly invented the particular technique that resulted in the making of what we know today as sandstone.
This technique was secret until Pietro Bigaglia, another glassmaker artisan, made it available to the public in the 19th century. Meanwhile, others believe that sandstone originated in medieval times when it was forged and molded by monastic orders, which called it "monk's gold."
Technically speaking, both sandstone and blue sandstone are made of quartz sand that has been heated, melted, and then infused with other particles like copper, feldspar, manganese, cobalt, or chromium to give them their captivating and cheery colors.
