What Is Que Sera Stone Made Of?
Que Sera Stone is a unique, rare form of Rhyolite which is exclusively found in Brazil, and is noted for its similarity to Llanite due to their similar compositions of a dark grey-brown Rhyolite matrix with sometimes opalescent blue Quartz crystals.
Rhyolite is a silica-rich volcanic rock which contains high levels of silicate minerals such as Quartz minerals and Feldspar minerals.
Therefore, Que Sera Stone, as a Rhyolite variety, is composed of many different minerals, including; Quartz, Feldspar, Kaolinite, Calcite, Clinozoisite, Leucoxene/ Leucozene, Magnetite, and iron oxides.
Other Rhyolite varieties include Obsidian, which is a Rhyolite Volcanic Glass.
Que Sera Stone Colours
Que Sera Stone is prized for its unique colours and patterns, which can include a a range of earthy brown, grey, and black hues contrasted against bright blues and peach-pinks.
The range in colours is caused by the variety of mineral inclusions within the stone.
Blue hues in Blue Que Sera Stone are usually the result of Blue Quartz inclusions. The cause of Blue Quartz in Que Sera Stone is still not fully understood, but it is thought that Undulatory Extinction occurred during the metamorphism process of the rock and this facilitated the unique composition and structure of the stone that lends it well to the Rayleigh Scattering effect of light scattering (which is thought to be behind the observable blue colour of the Quartz).
Inclusions of titanium oxides such as Ilmenite and iron oxides may also be involved in creating the Blue Quartz fragments in Que Sera Stone.
Blue Quartz Phenocrysts refers to the nature of the Quartz inclusions being larger crystals within the otherwise fine-grained ground mass/ matrix of the Rhyolite rock: these Blue Quartz crystals are sometimes opalescent in appearance.
Pink hues in Pink Que Sera Stone are usually the result of Feldspar inclusions.
Que Sera Stone Names
Que Sera Stone mainly derives its name from the phrase "Que Sera, sera", which means "what will be, will be": this is in reference to the proposed metaphysical properties of the stone, including its accepting and forgiving crystal energy.
Que Sera Stone also derives its name from one of the geological processes that are said to be the origin of the signature Blue Quartz crystals within the stone: "Quartz Undulatory Extinction" (the first letter of each word spelling "Que", the first word of the "Que Sera, sera" phrase).
Que Sera Stone is often referred to by other names, including Blue Liberite, Galaxy Rhyolite, Blue Opal (owing to the sometimes opalescent Blue Quartz phenocrysts in Que Sera Stone), Blue Opal Llanite, and Llanite (Que Sera Stone is very similar to Llanite, but does not come from Llano County, Texas, and therefore is not true Llanite).
Que Sera Stone is sometimes confused with Vulcanite.
Where Does Que Sera Stone Come From?
Que Sera Stone is exclusively found in Brazil: the similar stone Llanite is exclusively found in Llano County, Texas.
