The fluorite gemstone’s attributes are predominantly connected with specific area of fortification and stabilization. Still, these protective features are more delicate and not a typical example, especially with hematite stones. It is also a useful, precious stone for grounding as well as, synchronization of all spiritual forces in our microcosm.
Fluorite is also able for enhancing perception by assembling the connection that exists between the individual’s mind and the universal awareness, which is quite transparent. This is not only that, fluorite is capable to use these perceptive or insights to all types of conditions through the physical certainty.
So, in essence, this attractive stone truly facilitates for the synchronization of the physical as well as, metaphysical world. It also increases spiritual development, and stimulating self-esteem. Fluorite is intermittently referred as “fluorspar”. Its term was originated from the Latin word “fluo”, which literally means “to flow”.
Fluorite was found in some regions such as China, Canada, Czechoslovakia, England, Germany, Hungary, Mexico, Norway, Peru, Poland, South Africa, Thailand, Norway, and USA.
Fluorite has an extensive range of colours such as blue, green, pink, purple, and yellow. It is an attractive and striking stone because habitually more than one shade takes place in such a single stone. In fact, the earliest Egyptians use this stone to shape out statues and scarabs, which most Chinese has utilized it for carvings more than 300 years.
Fluorite (calcium fluoride).
Historically called fluorspar, fluorite has been used in carvings and Fluorite beads and decorative objects for hundreds of years, but the availability of Fluorite faceted pieces is a relatively new development. Not readily useable in jewelry due to its softness (its hardness ratio is 4), and possessing perfect cleavage in four directions, it is primarily a collector’s gem.
One of the most famous of all gem fluorite mines, located in Castleton, Derbyshire in the UK, and now, sadly, virtually exhausted, produced the famous “Blue John.” This banded, translucent, cream and blue-purple fluorite was extensively used throughout Europe over at least fifteen centuries to produce stunning vases, sculptures, and ornamental items. The very small production remaining today goes almost exclusively to custom jewelry.
Quite recently, a Fluorite deposit of colorful and durable, highly silicate, massive fluorite was discovered in Utah, and has been given a number of fanciful names: Picasso Stone and Bertandite, to name two. More properly called “opalised fluorite,” it makes attractive cabochon gems.
