Deep blue dumortierite is called the "blue denim stone." It is named for a French paleontologist, Eugène Dumortier, who discovered it in 1881 in the Rhône-Alps region of France. Dumortierite is used to manufacture high grade porcelain. It is sometimes mistaken for sodalite and lapis lazuli. Because of the perceived similarity, dumortierite is often used as a cost-saving substitute for lapis which costs two to three times as much.
