Stretchy bracelet with 8mm dumortierite stone. Dumortierite was first described in 1881 and takes its name from the French paleontologist Eugene Dumortier. It is a stone that is used not only in making jewelry but also for several industrial purposes. It is used to make ceramics and porcelain because it turns into a color of pure white when exposed to fire or heat. Dumortierite looks very much like sodalite and lapis lazuli. Its colors range from pale to dark blue.
Historically this stone has been used to treat many digestive issues, headache, diarrhea, stomach ache, and other intestinal problems. It can also help relieve vomiting, nausea, cramping, and colic in babies.
