History & Origin:
Fluorite is a calcium fluoride mineral belonging to the Halide group. A natural source of Fluorine, it commonly forms in hydrothermal veins in the Earth's crust as well as in cavities in sedimentary rocks - crystallising in masses, cubic, & octahedral crystals. Often called "the most colourful mineral in the world," this gem is well-loved for it's vast array of hues & beautiful colour zoning. This mineral is allochromatic, & in fact colourless in its pure form - but often tinted by impurities, radiation exposure, & the absence of voids of the colour centres. In 1852, Fluorite gave its name to the phenomenon of Fluorescence. Physicist Sir George Gabriel Stokes discovered certain specimens would glow a blue-violet under ultraviolet light. Fluorite can be found in a wide range of locations, though the top producers are China & Mexico. Other locations include England (where the famous Blue John Fluorite is found), Peru & Switzerland (rare pink crystals), Brazil, USA, Russia, South Africa, Morocco & Mongolia.
With such a vast array of colours, each variation of Fluorite holds its own unique power & properties, with green bringing balance & healing, blue bringing calmness & clear communication, & purple, heightening intuition & aiding spiritual balance. Despite their differences, which are outlined in further detail below, all types of Fluorite both activate & energise the aura, as well as all the Chakras. This gem encourages organisation & order, both physically & mentally, & can help bring clarity & stability to chaotic situations. Fluorite can assist students as it enhances concentration & strengthens the ability to take in information.
