Que Sera

The Que Sera Stone (also marketed as Vulcanite or Llanite) is a relatively recent discovered rare stone. Dark brown, often with pinkish-brown patches of feldspar, the most interesting stones have spots of pale blue chalcedony. Its name literally translates into “Whatever will be, will be”. The Llano Uplift, located in Llano County, Texas, USA, is where Llanite occurs, while Que Sera is found in a grey matrix variety from Brazil.

Formation

Unique in its own way, this stone is composed of quartz, jasper, feldspar, calcite, kaolinite, iron, magnetite, leucozone, clinozoisite, chalcedony and several other materials. Typically sedimentary rocks have clasts (chards, fragments, bits, pieces) of any rocks material or weathering materials (sand, earth, water…) washed down river or downstream. Conglomerates can contain many different types of rounded clasts, including minerals such as quartz or sedimentary, metamorphic, or igneous rock fragments. Clasts can be bonded together by a mixture of sand, clay, and naturally occurring cement.

Properties

Que Sera stones have a lustrous polish due to their high density. A notable feature is their beautiful blue chalcedony phenocrysts, which seem to glow in the sun. It has a hardness of 7 on Mohs scale.
