This is the only gemstone which has such a wide variety of colours including red, pink, green, black, blue, violet, yellow and brown. Also, this amazing crystal is pyroelectric and piezoelectric. Due to this, Dutch traders would rub them and use them to pull the ashes from their meerschaum pipes, hence their name aschentrekkers or ash pullers.
