Does platinum have a blue color especially when you get it near light?

0 votes

I found a black colored stone that weighs 1/2 troy ounce and it has a peculiar bluish color that reflects especial near a light source or outside on a sunny day. Would this stone be platinum with other ore mixed? It is not heavy enough to be pure platinum.

Certainly possible. Below is the link to what this site says about platinum. Could be silver, aluminum, chromium...mixed.
