Bertrandite or Tiffany characteristics

You can also find it under the name of Tiffany but there are other names such as opal fluorite, ice cream opalite or purple opalite.

It was discovered next to Nantes, in France, in 1880. It is Alexis Damour who first made a description of it and gave it this name in 1883 in honor of the mining engineer, Emile Bertrand.

It is made of beryllium, quartz, chalcedony, opal, and manganese oxide, all of them united by volcano conditions.

It was only excavated as a complement to the beryllium mining first. This is the reason why it is a rare stone and that it has a short history.

Mines: Brazil, the USA, Italy, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Namibia.
