Creatures Create Problems

My very own Alphacreach, my cat Spot, has just smashed a favourite 'candle in glass' of mine. Oh well,I get to examine all the interesting things in the transparent 'gel wax' bottom layer of this once fabulous candle!!

The blue sandstone issue.

There's plenty of conflicting 'information' about this stone (or is it a stone?!) on the net. Obviously there is such a thing as natural sandstone and it can exist in shades of blue. However, the 'gemstone' referred to as blue sandstone is not the natural sedimentary rock but a man-made glass which is given its sparkliness by copper being added to the glass.
